Mission Statement

The Marquette University (MU) and Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Department of Biomedical Engineering is dedicated to delivering an extraordinary educational experience designed to empower the next generation of biomedical engineers, scientists and physicians. If you have a passion for learning and a desire to translate ideas into action — particularly those involving medical devices and health care technologies — let our faculty, staff and industry partners guide you on your journey. We develop leaders and problem solvers skilled at applying engineering, science and design principles to improve health in the service of humanity by:

  • Discovering and disseminating new knowledge;
  • Promoting critical thinking and lifelong learning;
  • Guiding students to meaningful and ethical professional and personal lives;
  • Fostering interdisciplinary and collaborative research and education through academic and industrial alliances;
  • Continuing innovative leadership in education, research and industrial relationships; and
  • Inspiring faculty and students to serve others.

Program Descriptions

The MU-MCW biomedical engineering program is interdisciplinary in nature, involving the application of engineering and mathematics to the solution of problems related to medicine and biology. The faculty reflect this interdisciplinary nature in their courses and research. MU faculty are synergistically complemented by faculty from the MCW. The Department of Biomedical Engineering fosters collaborative interactions between the two institutions. Research can be characterized by the general areas of bioinstrumentation, biomechanics, biomedical imaging, cellular and molecular engineering, computational biology and bioinformatics, and rehabilitation bioengineering.

General Information

All admitted students are required to obtain and read the department’s Graduate Student Handbooks for each of the degree programs, which contains complete details about the biomedical engineering programs. The handbook for each degree is available through the Department of Biomedical Engineering website.
