Broad, deep research and training environment
You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with graduate faculty members who span the full spectrum of biomedical engineering.
Our 80+ faculty hail from more than 20 departments as well as our own, which has special research expertise in cardiovascular, neural, and cancer bioengineering.
Proximity to engineering, science, and medicine
We’re adjacent to the Medical School and other University of Minnesota science and engineering domains — they’re just steps away and connected by tunnels.
This proximity creates an intellectual environment where there’s:
✓ Interdisciplinary research.
✓ Engineering being applied to fundamental biological questions.
✓ Clinical and translational research collaborations.
A great place to live
The Minneapolis-St. Paul area offers vibrant culture and arts and abundant opportunities to enjoy the outdoors — all at a lower cost of living than cities on the east or west coast.
