What is neuroengineering? Neuroengineering is the confluence of neuroscience, device development, computation, and mathematics, and is one of the most exciting new ventures in science and technology today. Neuroengineering brings together state-of-the-art technologies, algorithms, experimental research and concepts that can:

  • Develop devices and computing to assist those with neural disorders – an issue that confronts nearly 1 billion people worldwide.
  • Reveal how computations are done by neural systems– one of the greatest challenges facing science today.
  • Inspire new algorithms, technologies, mathematics, and robotics via reverse engineering living neural systems.
  • Educate the next generation of scientists and engineers who will transcend the traditional boundaries of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
