College of Engineering Dean Ilesanmi Adesida recently acknowledged developing a strong Bioengineering Department as one of the five key goals for the future of the College.

"We see a strong bioengineering department as vital to leveraging faculty strengths across all of our departments, and to establishing engineering's leadership in the campus-wide Translational Health Initiative and the Integrated Sciences for Health Initiative," Dean Adesida wrote in a recent message to faculty and staff.

Current plans anticipate the department growing to 15 Bioengineering faculty and maintaining the more than 50 affiliate faculty serving 200 to 300 undergraduates and 70 to 100 graduate students. Read the complete message from Dean Adesida (pdf).
