Programme Structure

The biomedical engineering program is interdisciplinary in nature, involving the application of engineering and mathematics to the solution of problems related to medicine and biology. Marquette faculty are synergistically complemented by adjunct faculty from the Medical College of Wisconsin. The MU/MCW Center for Biomedical Engineering and Biomathematics fosters collaborative interactions between the two institutions. Research can be characterized by the general areas of bioinstrumentation/computers, biomechanics/biomaterials, rehabilitation bioengineering and systems physiology. More specific areas of research include: artificial limbs/prostheses, biomaterials, biotelemetry, cell transport and metabolism, cardiac electrophysiology, computers in medicine, functional imaging (magnetic resonance, X-ray), head and spinal cord trauma, hemodynamics, human motion analysis, medical and biological image analysis, physiological signal processing, rehabilitation engineering, systems physiology (cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, neuroscience, pulmonary), telerehabilitation, tissue engineering, hard and soft tissue biomechanics and transcutaneous power transfer.
