The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) is part of the College of Engineering and Computing at FIU and is a prime resource for biomedical engineering education, training, research, and technology development. BME is an ever-evolving field that uses and applies engineering principles to the study of biology and medicine in order to improve health care.
Located in Miami, Florida, Florida International University, a Top 100 public university that is designated a Carnegie Highest Research (R1) and Carnegie Community Engaged institution is committed to high-quality teaching, state-of-the-art research and creative activity, and collaborative engagement with the local and global communities. The Department of Biomedical Engineering is ranked among the Top 50 schools (#43) providing the best value to students nationally, #1 for bachelor’s degrees awarded to Hispanics, #3 in bachelor’s degrees awarded to African-Americans, and #26 most popular biomedical engineering programs nationwide. We are preparing a diverse community of biomedical engineers and are engaged in translation of research to health care applications through discovery, innovation, entrepreneurship, and community engagement. The biomedical engineering faculty includes 1 National Academy of Inventor Fellow, 3 American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering Fellows, 1 SPIE Fellow, 1 American Heart Association Fellow, and 1 NAI Senior Member.
