Program Description

Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering

East Carolina University

Biomedical engineering focuses on improving medical systems to enhance human health. Biomedical engineers take engineering science, analysis, and design and applies them in the context of human health performance and medicine. The ECU biomedical engineering concentration includes topics such as medical instrumentation, biological materials, and modeling in areas such as biomechanics and the physiological systems of the body. ECU Biomedical Engineering students learn the fundamental principles of life science applications, and life-long skills in engineering, communication and design and research. Small student-faculty ratios create a strong sense of collegiality between professors and students. Close collaboration and involvement with ECU Brody School of Medicine faculty assures the most current and critical topics and laboratory experiences. Building on the ECU engineering core, biomedical engineers take specialty courses that cover:

  • Organic Chemistry
  • Biomechanics and biomaterials
  • Biomedical instrumentation
  • Modeling of physiological systems
  • Principles of biomedical engineering

The integrated curriculum includes courses from key engineering areas such as instrumentation, materials, and modeling coupled with a hands-on engineering experience through laboratory coursework and solving real-life biomedical problems.

This school offers programs in:
  • English

Careers

Biomedical engineers are prepared for broad career options, including graduate study and medical school, careers in hospital and research operations, in biomedical product development, manufacturing and sales.
