The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Universidad de los Andes draws its strength from the quality of its human team. At its origins lies the commitment of a group of pioneer professors who decided to return to Colombia after completing their formation abroad, in order to promote the development of Biomedical Engineering at a time when this discipline was largely unknown in Colombia.

Since the creation of the Department, our multidisciplinary faculty and staff corps has been growing and consolidating in the main areas of Biomedical Engineering, guided always by the highest standards of academic excellence, ethics, and human values.
