Students in the Biomedical Engineering track receive training in the biological, physical and computational sciences through a combination of core and advanced courses, and interdisciplinary research. The core courses are meant to give the student a breadth of Biomedical Engineering knowledge, with a focus on topics that reflect current research activities of track faculty. These include biomedical microdevices, artificial muscle, optical imaging and spectroscopy, and biosensing. Students choose from a variety of biological science courses to customize their training to optimally prepare them to start their research project. Beyond the core, advanced courses are taken to add depth in the student's specialty area, e.g. biomechanics or instrumentation. Emphasis is placed on a high quality research environment and a tutorial relationship between the student and her/his mentors and program committee.
