Department of Biomedical Engineering


Biomedical engineers are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of people through developing and perfecting medical technologies and devices, such as artificial knees, hips, and hearts; laser-surgery instruments; and scanners like MRI machines.

At LTU, you will collaborate with your professors on cutting-edge research and get plenty of hands-on experience in the laboratory. You’ll also have the opportunity to co-op or intern in hospitals or industry alongside engineers, researchers, doctors, nurses, and health care professionals. LTU’s goal is to give you the best preparation to enter and succeed in this growing field.

OUR MISSION: To educate next generation biomedical engineers by creating a student-centered learning environment that encourages interdisciplinary research and design that uses engineering tools to solve problems addressing needs in life sciences and medicine.
