Technology-Health Care Nexus
“The future of health care is not only in providing improved treatments for injury or disease, but in providing the resources and tools for individuals to take a more active role in monitoring and maintaining their own health.”
“Through my own research, I know the absolute necessity of an interdisciplinary approach in solving important health challenges.”
Grads in High Demand
“It is incredible to see so many alumni return to scout and hire our students.”
“I applied to several universities across the United States looking for the perfect place to study biomedical engineering. The UA has delivered.”
In Good Health
“I considered many options for majors during my first few semesters in college, but my heart is truly with the medical side of engineering. I want to help people directly with their health.”
