Department Website

The mission of the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Colorado Denver|Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC) is to improve human health through the application of engineering principles, ideas, methods and inventions to solve important clinical problems. Our MS and PhD graduate programs prepare students for demanding careers in the biomedical industry including: hospital, government or academic research labs; regulatory agencies such as the FDA; industry, start-ups and entrepreneurial activities; and public service areas of health sciences including patent law or public health policy. The program welcomes students with quantitative (engineering, physics, mathematics, etc.) and life sciences (chemistry, biology, biochemistry, physiology, etc.) backgrounds. Graduate students spend most of their time at the AMC, which is a state of the art complex that promotes collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship with the inclusion of education, research, clinical care and a bioscience park on the same campus.
