Inventing the Future of Medicine. That’s not just a tagline. That’s something we actively do and pursue every day in the labs, classrooms and halls of the UW Department of Bioengineering. UW BioE is one of the top-ranked biomedical engineering departments in the U.S., based on a consistent history of innovative research programs, and top-10 ranked educational programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

A joint department of both the UW School of Medicine and the UW College of Engineering, UW BioE has a long history of successful translational research, and our alumni populate many of the world’s premier universities and companies in a wide range of bioengineering-related businesses.

Launched in 2012, the UW BioE Affiliates Program is designed to enhance interaction between members of the bioengineering industry and UW Bioengineering. We create opportunities for open exchange of ideas, mutually beneficial collaboration and student recruitment.
