The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) was established in June 2016. The current Head of the Department is Chair Professor Xingyu Jiang (PhD Harvard University; awardee, National Outstanding Youth Science Fund). BME currently has 40 faculty members, including three chair professors and two professors. Many of them have been awarded the “National Distinguished Youth Science Fund”, the “Outstanding Young Scholars of National Science Foundation of China”, and the “National Distinguished Experts” of The Recruitment Program for Innovative Talents. BME’s research areas include mechanomedicine, multiscale/multimodal biomedical imaging, wearable devices and wireless monitoring, biomedical micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), de novo regenerative engineering, computational medicine for big data and health informatics.
SUSTech BME receives strong support from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University and has formed its own undergraduate curricula based on the corresponding curricula of Columbia University. The Department shall cultivate students at the bachelor, master and PhD levels in collaboration with its counterpart at Columbia University.
The core culture of BME is “Adventurous, Arduous, Amiable”. We sincerely welcome more global talents to join us to create an interdisciplinary innovative research platform and make the platform a world-class biomedical engineering program within ten years.
