Prof. X. Edward Guo
Senior Adviser and Founding Chair
Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech).
The Department was established in June 2016. We have the privilege to receive strong support from the internationally renowned Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University in the USA and co-develop a world-class undergraduate and graduate international Biomedical Engineering program at SUSTech. We have established the AAA motto for the new Biomedical Engineering Department: Adventurous, Arduous, and Amiable. We welcome undergraduate and graduate, postdoctoral fellows and young faculty to join this exciting new Department of Biomedical Engineering.
The Biomedical Engineering program at SUSTech is formulated as an enhanced version of undergraduate Biomedical Engineering program at Columbia University. Most of junior and senior level courses will be taught in English. Therefore, you will receive the Ivy League Biomedical Engineering education in Shenzhen! The Department of Biomedical Engineering also features 3+1 undergraduate/master program where selective juniors will begin take two classes via distal learning at Columbia University and will be admitted to the master program at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering has developed joint Biomedical Engineering MS-PhD program. Highly qualified students can be admitted to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University via the Department of Biomedical Engineering at SUSTech. These students will be co-advised by esteemed faculty at both Departments and spend first two years on the campus of Columbia University while finish doctoral research on the SUSTech campus. They will receive full-fledged doctoral degree from Columbia University. The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the SUSTech has received extraordinary support from the University, the College of Engineering, and the Shenzhen government. We have attracted top global talents to join the Department of Biomedical Engineering, including a Distinguished Young Scholar of the Chinese National Science Foundation and an Outstanding Young Investigator of the Chinese National Natural Science Foundation. We offer internationally competitive salaries and start-up packages to recruit top experts in Biomedical Engineering around the world. We welcome adventurous, arduous, and amiable biomedical engineering talents to join our Department of Biomedical Engineering.
