Bioengineering - About Us

Bioengineering activities at Penn State are administered by the College of Engineering's Department of Bioengineering and encompass undergraduate studies at the University Park campus, and multidisciplinary graduate studies at University Park and within the College of Medicine at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. At the graduate level, an Intercollege Graduate Degree Granting Program is funded by both the College of Engineering and Graduate School to maximize the interactions among faculty at both campuses. Within the College of Medicine, graduate studies in bioengineering are coordinated through the newly formed Institute for Biomedical Engineering at the Hershey Medical Center. The central mission of the Department of Bioengineering is to serve as the focal point of engineering activities in the life sciences for the Penn State University system.
