Established in 2009, the newest undergraduate program at the UA College of Engineering department reflects a long-standing tradition of interdisciplinary research at the intersection of medicine, science and engineering.
Our faculty boast a variety of backgrounds and research areas, but all are dedicated to improving human health through the application of engineering and scientific principles.
The Graduate Interdisciplinary Program brings the research and teaching expertise of more than 60 faculty in 17 departments into one exciting graduate school experience.
Toth's undergraduate research, performed under professor Jeong-Yeol Yoon, focused on improving pathogen diagnostic devices by integrating novel detection methods. In March, he received the award for Most Creative Research at BME Design Day. Toth credits guidance from Yoon and his labmates in solidifying his decision to pursue graduate school and a career in academia.
"Academics are huge! You're a student-athlete, not an athlete-student," says junior Tyler Fowler in a recent Pac-12 video spot. The third-generation engineer (and Olympic hopeful!) explains what exciting opportunities brought him into BME in particular.
