About

Biomedical Engineering (BME)  brings together concepts and skills from the life sciences, the physical sciences, medicine and engineering, in order to model physiological systems and solve medical problems. As a leader in biomedical engineering research and education, IIT prepares students for leadership positions in some of today's most promising and challenging careers in industry, medicine and research.

We’ve developed new research and teaching facilities, our faculty are on the forefront of research in the field, and we are continuing to grow our undergraduate program. We are attracting an exceptional group of undergraduates interested in the application of engineering and mathematics to biology and clinical medicine. In your sophomore year, you decide which of three BME tracks you want to pursue (cell and tissue engineering, medical imaging, or neural engineering)—each of which integrates different aspects of traditional engineering fields with medical science.
