Mission and Values
The mission of the UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering is to unite engineering and medicine to improve lives. The work and culture of the Joint Department are built on three core values: innovate, collaborate, and translate.
The Joint Department is a unique collaboration between North Carolina’s two flagship universities: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. The nationally ranked UNC Hospitals and School of Medicine at UNC-Chapel Hill provide an excellent clinical environment for students to gain experience in medicine, while the College of Engineering at NC State, one of the finest engineering and computer science schools in the world, offers state-of-the art facilities for students and faculty engaged in vital areas of research and technology transfer.
