The Department of Bioengineering is the first of its kind in Colorado. Its goal is to improve human health through the application of engineering principles, ideas, methods, and inventions in order to solve important clinical problems.
The consolidation of the CU Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus provides unprecedented instructional resources in bioengineering and research opportunities in health sciences. Students have opportunities to learn from clinicians and engineers and to perform research or medical device design in world-class hospitals and clinical research labs.
Bioengineering will be one of the fastest growing job markets over the next decade. An advanced degree in this area provides numerous opportunities to work in health care, biomedical industry, government regulatory agencies, and academia.
