Biomedical Engineering Committees


The Biomedical Engineering committee members and representatives serve terms as determined in accordance with the department bylaws. The principal function of the department committees is to serve as central steering committees for governance. The members serve with the intention of sharing their experience and expertise to help the department grow and be more effective.

In that capacity, the committee members explore and gather information for deliberation and action by the faculty under the policy guidelines of the University, College, and Department. The committees also recommend solutions and operations that are presented to other officers of the administration.
