Track 7: Biomedical Engineering



The BME Department is a participant in the Virginia Tech – Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (SBES). PhD and MS degree programs in Biomedical Engineering are offered exclusively via the SBES and degrees are awarded jointly by Virginia Tech and Wake Forest University. Research theme areas at both locations include biomedical imaging; biomechanics; cell, tissue, and material engineering; medical physics; bioinformatics; and surgical simulation. Other areas of concentration are also available.

With campuses in Blacksburg (Virginia Tech) and Winston-Salem (Wake Forest), this unique partnership brings the resources of the WFU School of Medicine together with the Virginia Tech Colleges of Engineering and Veterinary Medicine and provides exceptional opportunities for research and education.  Regular interaction with physicians, clinical scientists, and basic biomedical and physical scientists provides a rich environment for collaboration and for focusing engineering research on relevant clinical and biomedical problems.  

Please visit the external SBES program website for more information about our unique program.
