The last half-century has seen an unparalleled explosion in new medical knowledge that can help to extend lifespan and to improve the quality of life. Scientific discoveries have led to the creation of new biomedical industries and health-related businesses. As a national center for the pharmaceutical and technology industries, New Jersey is at the center of this activity. Although it is the newest department of Newark College of Engineering, the Department of Biomedical Engineering is poised to take off.
Student interest—at both the undergraduate and graduate levels—is rising faster in the biomedical field than almost any other engineering area now. We are also lucky to have an excellent senior faculty, in addition to outstanding young faculty members. We expect to see the department and the state's biotechnology industry continue to grow rapidly in the coming years.
