The Illinois Board of Higher Education approved the formation of the Department of Bioengineering at Illinois on December 9, 2003. Also approved at that time were the granting of Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Bioengineering.
The first cohorts of 22 undergraduates and 3 graduate students entered in Fall 2004, and the first class graduated in May 2008.
Currently the Department is home to 17 full-time faculty, more than 70 graduate students, and more than 200 undergraduates.
