Bioengineering - Mission and Vision

Our mission is to educate students to become world-class engineers who contribute to social and economic development through innovative solutions to problems in medicine and the life sciences. Our uniquely trained faculty and specialized facilities enable cutting-edge research in fundamental biology, medical device design, and disease diagnosis, with a goal to translate discovery from academia to society. Penn State Bioengineering aims to be a nucleus of activities in engineering approaches to the life sciences and to broaden the impact of bioengineering activities locally, nationally, and internationally by collaborations with other disciplines, clinicians, industrial developers, and policy makers.
