Overview

Biomedical engineering is concerned with the integrative and mathematical approach to biology and also with more pragmatic problems such as the biomedical use of information systems and the development of advanced biomedical instrumentation.

The Graduate School of Vanderbilt University, in collaboration with the Schools of Engineering and Medicine, offers Master of Engineering, Master of Science; and Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in Biomedical Engineering. The goal of the Vanderbilt program is to provide advanced education and research training in quantitative organ and cellular biology, in biomedical information and instrumentation systems, imaging and in the scientific principles underlying the origination of therapeutic devices and processes. It is specifically concerned with the interface between the engineering, physical, computing and mathematical sciences, and biology.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is in the School of Engineering, but is closely affiliated with the medical school. In addition to the M.Eng., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, the department also participates in the School of Medicine M.D./Ph.D. program. Many BME faculty members hold joint appointments with Engineering School, A&S, and Medical School departments, and numerous faculty from across campus hold joint appointments in BME. The School of Medicine and University Hospital are located on the same campus as the School of Engineering, less than one block away. This close proximity facilitates a wide variety of collaborative efforts between faculty and students in the two schools.
