Biomedical Engineering at The University of Akron is both patient-centered as well as student-focused. We seek to find solutions to pressing needs of the medical community, and we expect our students to be at the forefront of medical innovation. Within our department, we focus on three areas of specialization: Biomechanics, Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering, and Instrumentation, Signals & Imaging. Through these areas we strive to (i) better understand mechanisms of disease, (ii) develop improved technologies for diagnosing or treating diseases, and (iii) educate the next generation of biomedical engineers. Knowledge gained through this approach fuels the rapid expansion of our region’s biomedical sector.
