Hello and welcome to the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Toledo! We are very proud of our department and we hope that this web site will give you all the information you need to make your decision to join us. The UT College of Engineering has a long tradition of academic excellence and our department is a major contributor to this tradition. The College of Engineering offers award winning faculty and staff, state-of-the-art laboratories and an integrated undergraduate co-operative employment experience, among others.
The Department of Bioengineering strives to offer the most student-centered undergraduate and graduate Bioengineering programs in the country. Our faculty are fully engaged with the students and we are currently implementing a new peer mentoring program for our first year undergraduates. Our web site also details all of the academic programs we offer, including our BS/MD program which guarantees admission to the UT College of Medicine for selected Bioengineering undergraduates. The Department of Bioengineering is also a leading participant in the new Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Engineering between the Colleges of Engineering and Medicine.
Our department is home to some of the best research programs in selected areas, such as the biomechanics of the spine, energy production from biomass and the development of chemical and biological sensors. In the area of spine research, the department now has two endowed professorships. We are continuing to hire new faculty in these research areas and the department's research profile is expected to grow.
Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions about our programs.
