Duquesne to Inaugurate Biomedical Engineering Program

Drawing on strengths in professional programs and a liberal arts education, Duquesne University is poised to begin a biomedical engineering program.

The program would be the only engineering degree offered in Southwestern Pennsylvania at a top-tier Catholic research institution.  Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing areas within the field and one of the most diverse.

The University is advertising for a director for the program and will start the first biomedical engineering classes in the Fall 2014 semester, said Dr. Alan W. Seadler, associate academic vice president for research.
