About SBME

The Colorado State University School of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) provides transdisciplinary education, research, and practical experiences throughout a full range of degree programs. The unique structure of the School involves four colleges, 14 departments, and over 70 faculty. Academic excellence across diverse fields converges into three primary areas of research: (1) regenerative and rehabilitative medicine, (2) imaging and diagnostics, and (3) medical devices and therapeutics.

History & Mission

Officially established in 2000 as an interdisciplinary program, the School’s structure offers many advantages over the traditional academic department structure because it enables horizontal integration of faculty and their research programs across multiple departments. Faculty from four Colleges: Engineering, Health and Human Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences are eligible to become members of the SBME. Together, our mission is to infuse biomedical issues and problems with engineering skills and solutions. Collaboration is a central component of our educational and research efforts at CSU and with our partners around the world.
