Message from the Chair

Jennifer Kang-MeilierJennifer Kang-MielerWelcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology!

Since it was established as a department in 2018, we have much to celebrate in how our department has grown. We are dedicated to educating future BME leaders and entrepreneurs to solve healthcare challenges in industry, academia, and medicine. See Better, Move Stronger, Breathe Easier, and Heal Faster as our goals; our faculty develop innovative devices, computational tools, and therapeutic systems that translate into medical practice for early detection and effective treatment. Our research profile includes Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Biomedical Imaging, Biomechanics and Rehabilitation, and Neural Engineering.

Our outstanding faculty research projects are supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), to name a few. Five of our talented assistant professors are honored with the prestigious NSF CAREER and NIH MIRA awards.

We offer B.E., M.S., and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering degrees. We have approximately 275 undergraduate students, 60 master’s students, and 30 PhD students in our program. And we are growing! After graduation, our diverse, brilliant students are making a difference by translating the knowledge and experience gained into solving healthcare challenges.

We strive to enrich and expand the impact of our department. We are working to enhance interdisciplinary research collaborations and education opportunities in medicine and industry. We strive to make a global scientific, social, and cultural impact through our innovative education and research each day.

I invite you to learn more about our outstanding program! You can also find us on LinkedIn and Instagram.
