Biomedical Engineering is one of the fastest growing fields of engineering and the knowledge and skills of persons with advanced degrees are in high demand. Students from diverse fields of biological sciences and engineering can find high impact careers following a graduate degree. At the Weldon School, you will find highly interdisciplinary research that spans contemporary biomedical engineering. Students work closely with faculty mentors from the multiple entities at Purdue, including the College of Engineering, College of Science, School of Pharmacy, and the School of Veterinary Medicine, to earn advanced degrees. Additional mentoring comes from clinical partners at the Indiana University School of Medicine and industrial partners at companies across the State of Indiana and Midwest. The combined faculty, staff, and facilities offer unparalleled resources and opportunities for all of our graduate students.
