Biomedical Engineering

This interdisciplinary field integrates engineering and life sciences to support the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Biomedical engineers often serve as integrators in multidisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and healthcare professionals in the medical device and biotechnology industries, as well as at government regulatory agencies. Georgia Tech and Emory's program challenges students with practical, hands-on problem-solving and design experiences throughout the curriculum. Graduates of the program have the strong foundation necessary to address the complex healthcare challenges of the twenty-first century. The department is dedicated to improving health and well-being by creating medical breakthroughs driven by engineering innovation and translational research.
