Completed in 2002, our building, the Engineering Centers Building (ECB), offers state-of-the-art facilities in which students and faculty study, invent and discover. We are located on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus in close proximity to the UW Hospital and Clinics and UW–Madison’s world-class bioscience and biotechnology facilities.
In addition to our location in ECB, many BME faculty members have labs in the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR), which is located on the School of Medicine and Public Health campus. WIMR is designed to encourage unique gatherings of scientists from different disciplines to address urgent health problems of common concern. BME faculty are key members of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery/Morgridge Institute for Research (WID/MIR), which is a hub for interdisciplinary research that will lead to the development of new biomedical treatments and technological applications aimed at improving human health and welfare.
Combined, these facilities offer our students and faculty an environment that is unparalleled for research, learning and innovation, making the University of Wisconsin–Madison an exceptional place to study biomedical engineering.
