Biomedical Engineering Program Area
The Biomedical Engineering (BME) Program Area supports education and discovery in fundamental applied science and engineering, as well as translational science, to address grand challenges in human health.
BME Program Area Lead: Ryan Halter
The Student Experience
We are committed to offering individualized mentoring of our student's professional development toward becoming enabled, independent professionals, and to maximizing the quality our student's experience through scholarship, coursework, and community.
Students are expected to propose a plan of study that supports their interests, potentially including distinctive intellectual paths unconstrained by disciplinary boundaries and enriched by interdisciplinary synergies.
Most graduate study is advanced through the research thesis and disseminated through contributions to the peer-reviewed literature, presentations at professional meetings, and in some cases patents and other forms.
We seek to foster stimulating and accessible intellectual communities among students and faculty interested in BME within Thayer, across Dartmouth, and among researchers and practitioners from around the US and the world.
Dartmouth Team Invited to Share Promising Findings in Radiation Oncology at National Conference
The American Society for Radiation Oncology invited a research team from NCCC that includes Dartmouth Engineering students and faculty to present their abstract "Imaging Radiotherapy-Induced Cherenkov Emission in Color."
Individualized plans of study are developed by students with their faculty mentors pursuant to gaining both a broad understanding of science and engineering relevant to BME, and also depth in one or more technical areas within the student's focus area. Technical depth is addressed through courses often relevant to the research areas listed above.
