Join us

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) was established in June 2016, when Prof. X. Edward Guo from Columbia University, the Founding Chair, was appointed as Senior Advisor.

The Department currently has 11 core faculty members, including one Chinese Central Government “The Outstanding Youth of Ten Thousand Talents Plan” expert, one “Thousand Talent Program” expert, one The National Science Foundation of China “Distinguished Young Scholars”, three “Young Thousand Talent Program” experts, one Outstanding Young Scholars of National Science Foundation of China. Research areas include mechanomedicine, multiscale/multimodal biomedical imaging, wearable devices and wireless monitoring, Biomedical MEMS, de novo regenerative engineering, computational medicine for big data and health informatics.

SUSTech BME receives strong support from the BME at Columbia University and has formed its own undergraduate curricula based on the BME curricula of Columbia University. The Department shall cultivate students at bachelor, master and PhD levels in collaboration with the BME at Columbia University.

The core culture of the Department is “Adventurous, Arduous, Amiable”. We sincerely welcome more global talents to join us to create an interdisciplinary innovative research platform, and make the platform a world-class biomedical engineering program within ten years.
