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.
The FIU Biomedical Engineering Department has established an award for undergraduate students to participate in faculty research during the summer. The awards are intended to support students with an interest in pursuing a career in research with plans to attend graduate studies in biomedical engineering[…]
Sharan Ramaswamy, Ph.D., received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Partnerships for Innovation – Technology Translation (PFI-TT) grant. According to NSF, the PFI-TT grant “offers researchers the opportunity to transform new knowledge into societal benefits through translational research and technology development efforts, which catalyze partnerships to accelerate innovations that address significant societal needs.”…
The world is going through difficult times and our duty as biomedical engineers is to help others with our knowledge when they need us the most[…]
Due to the current situation, this semester’s Senior Design Expo was completely different from the past years and was even more challenging for our students. Each group had to submit their reports, posters and oral presentations through an online platform for judges to evaluate them…
The Department of Biomedical Engineering is changing people’s lives through translational research. Research conducted within the department is clustered into three major areas: Basic Research in Tissue Engineering Model Systems, Diagnostic Bio-Imaging and Sensor Systems, and Therapeutic and Reparative Neurotechnology. These three areas are served by technological advancements in bio-imaging and bio-signal processing, bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, bio-nanotechnology, biophotonics, cellular and tissue engineering, computational modeling, devices and sensors, and neural engineering.
