The biomedical engineering program prepares you to work in today’s healthcare industry and learn how to support professionals, hospitals, and medical offices by creating and maintaining important tools and resources. Discover how to design and build biomedical equipment and devices for diagnosing medical problems and improving health for those in need.
About the Major
Biomedical engineers speak two languages: that of the engineer and that of the health professional. They understand what is involved in examining people, evaluating their health, and understanding what is available to improve their quality of life. They also comprehend the science and mathematics behind these areas and can evaluate the potential of new devices and methods to improve on current technologies.

The standard program prepares students with a solid basis in a diverse variety of subjects related to biomechanics (bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, etc.); biofluids (blood flow, heart valves, airflow in the lungs, etc.); and bioinstrumentation, (the instruments and sensors used to measure physiological systems.)

About the Minor
The biomedical engineering minor provides students matriculating into bachelor’s degree programs in other colleges of the University, especially the sciences and the other engineering majors, with an introduction to the discipline of biomedical engineering.
