The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Stevens is the newest department at a storied engineering school advancing technologies at the intersection of engineering and healthcare. 

The department is home to state-of-the-art research laboratories conducting research in biomechanics, imaging, control systems, neuroengineering, and tissue engineering, and offers students with an interest in engineering the opportunity to apply engineering design and analysis techniques to problems in the healthcare field.

Message from the Chair

Hongjun Wang

Hongjun Wang, Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Stevens Institute of Technology. As the founding chair I am fully engaged and honored to serve to bring our success to its next stage. My immediate hope is to enrich and expand the impact of this department on the campus, to continue enhancing the interdisciplinary research and education opportunities, increase interactions with industry, and to work with our greatest resources–our students, faculty, staff, and alumni–to catalyze our influence nationally and internationally.

Our highly respected undergraduate and graduate biomedical engineering programs are developing tomorrow’s leaders who will address the grand challenges that lie ahead. Students are charting their own futures through innovation and entrepreneurship with the help of our established curricula and research opportunities on campus. Particularly, during senior year, our BME students are working closely with faculty and clinicians to gain important insights into human health and disease and translating that knowledge to industry and clinical practice. After graduation, our students are placed in highly sought-after graduate, medical, and industry positions.

Despite all the unforeseeable challenges we are facing these days, I deeply believe we will get through this unprecedented pandemic period together and become even much stronger afterward! I invite you to be part of Stevens' BME team for the great future ahead!

Stay safe and be well!

Dr. Hongjun Wang
