Biomedical Engineering is Uniquely Positioned for Graduate Education and Research
The Department of Biomedical Engineering is a department within a medical school and part of a clinical division whose research and educational programs reside within the Virginia Tech – Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (SBES). This unique position provides our faculty and students on the Wake Forest and Virginia Tech Campuses with a rich environment that encourages engineering research focused on relevant clinical and biomedical problems.
By having campuses in Blacksburg, Virginia (Virginia Tech) and Winston-Salem, North Carolina (Wake Forest), our model of a single school with two campuses combines the resources of the WFU School of Medicine with the Virginia Tech Colleges of Engineering and Veterinary Medicine and provides exceptional opportunities for research and education. PhD and MS degree programs in Biomedical Engineering are offered with focused areas that include biomedical imaging, biomechanics, tissue/material engineering, and medical physics.
Potential students, collaborators, industrial partners, and others interested in BME opportunities are encouraged to review our SBES website and to contact us for more information or to arrange a visit.
