The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering


The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering is a unique partnership and a spectacular success story. The department is dedicated to improving health and well-being by fostering the next generation of leaders in biomedical engineering worldwide; and our biomedical engineering bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs are consistently recognized among the best in the world.

This growth of the department has been organic and builds on a strong foundation of successful research and educational programs. There are two compelling factors driving this growth – first, there remain unmet clinical needs – like tackling debilitating conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cancer, arthritis, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, and immune disorders. Second, biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory attracts some of the brightest undergraduate and graduate students, from Georgia and every corner of the world, and our growth will better help us spark their curiosity, instill scientific rigor, and develop future leaders of our society.
