Giving to the Department of Biomedical Engineering

BME Alumni at commencement. The focus of the Department of Biomedical Engineering research and education programs is to improve health care delivery through discovery of new knowledge, development of novel medical devices and therapeutics, and training students to advance healthcare in the 21st century. As we strive to provide quality education, research, and experiential learning opportunities for our students, we often requires resources that are not available through tuition or research grants and contracts.

We need your support to continue our growth, expand the educational opportunities for students, and improve the prominence of the BME Department. For example:

  • Additional resources help us recruit and support graduate students.
  • Our alumni can support new faculty hires and new research directions where extramural grants and contract do not yet exist.
  • Support for our undergraduate program provides for necessary updates and improvements to our lab facilities and senior design courses, student participation in undergraduate research, and professional development activities for students such as research conference participation or plant visits.
  • Select additional needs include resources to support faculty and staff professional development, facilities and equipment upgrades, and outreach activities.

The continued success of the BME department depends on your partnership with us.
