Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Vermont.  EBE@UVM is home to some of the most innovative programs on campus including:

  •  A highly flexible and hands on undergraduate program (B.S.) in Electrical Engineering
  • Graduate programs (M.S. and Ph.D.) in Electrical Engineering where students and faculty work together to develop cutting edge solutions in projects sponsored by the likes of NSF, NASA and ARPA-E
  • New degrees (B.S. and M.S.) in Biomedical Engineering that leverage the existing strengths in engineering and a collaboration with UVM’s Larner College of Medicine
  • An interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Bioengineering where students work with researchers across campus in the areas of biomedical engineering and biotechnology



Our Mission

The Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering (EBE) provides world-class educational opportunities for students and to fosters internationally-recognized, faculty-driven research. The Department recognizes and values the breadth of expertise encompassed by the fields of electrical engineering and biomedical engineering and offers a collaborative environment that supports initiatives related to excellence in pedagogy and scholarship.

In EBE, you'll find individualized attention both in and out of the classroom, unique opportunities to work with faculty on their research (as an undergraduate too!), and an environment where interdisciplinary, extracurricular, and/or entrepreneurial interests are encouraged.  You’ll find in EBE a highly accessible faculty and staff — we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions you might have!

SEED project presentation

Senior Experience in Engineering Design (SEED):  Addressing big problems in small groups

Seniors in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering (EBE) and Mechanical Engineering programs work in teams to address complex and multidisciplinary problems through a SEED Project. SEED projects originate from companies, non-profits, faculty members and students. Visit the SEED Project page to learn more about previous projects and how you participate in the program as a student, faculty or Project Sponsor.

IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society

As a club, we plan to prepare our members for the professional world. We hope to build resumes, gain confidence through mock interviews and to improve our communication skills, both verbal and written. We also want to show our members what engineering looks like outside of the classroom through presentations from professionals and tours of facilities. All disciplines are welcome to join!


Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)

Join the Biomedical Engineering Society! A resource for innovation, student networking and community outreach. Open to students across disciplines.

Engineering World Health (EWH)

Engineering World Health (EWH) is a nonprofit organization that works to spread awareness about and to improve healthcare services in low-income countries. Our UVM chapter will work on outreach projects with local schools to teach younger generations and get them excited about medical technologies. We will also work on projects that connect directly with low-income countries in providing training and new technologies to their local engineers and hospitals.
