Biomedical Engineering @ USC

Welcome to the USC Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME)!
Since our early roots as an option within electrical engineering in 1963, we have maintained a longstanding tradition of advancing biomedicine through the development and application of novel engineering ideas. Our department, founded in 1976, includes over 80 primary and affiliated faculty members that conduct cutting-edge research in a wide variety of areas, including neuroengineering, biosystems and biosignal analysis, medical devices and implants, bioimaging and imaging informatics, and systems cellular-molecular bioengineering.
