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, established in 1976, includes over 75 primary and affiliated faculty members that conduct cutting-edge research in a wide variety of areas, including biomedical devices & imaging, cellular & molecular bioengineering, mathematical/computational biosystems, and neuroengineering.
