Bioengineering Description

The mission of the undergraduate bioengineering program at Binghamton University is to develop future leaders in the broad field encompassed by bioengineering. Upon graduation, our students will possess the analytical and creative skills, reinforced through the development of a solid ethical foundation, necessary to achieve professional employment in the broad field of bioengineering or to pursue graduate study in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, or the sciences, as well as other disciplines such as business, law, or medicine.
