Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary program highly focused on the improvement of human health, combining the innovative skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences, to improve health care from diagnostics to treatment.
What to Expect
As a biomedical engineering major, you will develop the ability to identify, formulate and solve open-ended problems at the interface of engineering and medicine using skills acquired in mathematics; biological, chemical and physical sciences; and engineering. You will also learn how to communicate technical material, function on a multidisciplinary team, demonstrate professional and ethical responsibility, continue along a path of lifelong learning and recognize economic, social and global issues related to the profession. You will enjoy courses with hands-on laboratory components as well as a senior capstone design sequence, during which you will work on problems defined by doctors or biomedical engineering industries. You will also be encouraged to get involved with research opportunities.
The biomedical engineering program offers two master's degrees and one Ph.D.:
- Master of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering (M.E.)
- M.S. in Biomedical Engineering
- Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering
