Department operating hours and contacts
Welcome to the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus. We are the first comprehensive bioengineer/biomedical engineering program in the State of Colorado and the only one located on a medical campus. This unique location allows students in our program to work directly with medical professionals and researchers that are the end users of engineered devices and therapeutics. The mission of our Department is to improve human health through the application of engineering principles, ideas, methods and inventions in order to solve important clinical problems. You can find out about our degree ad certificate programs and research using the menu to the left.
