About

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Stony Brook University offers the major in Biomedical Engineering, leading to the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree. 

Overview

Core courses provide depth within the broad field of biomedical engineering. These are integrated with, and rely upon, course offerings from both the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the College of Arts and Sciences. To achieve the breadth of engineering experience expected of Biomedical Engineer­ing graduates, additional elective courses from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences are required of all Biomedical Engineering students.

The Department also offers a five-year accelerated B.E./M.S. degree, which can be completed within one additional year of studies beyond the Bachelor's degree.

The accelerated B.E./M.S. is intended to prepare high-achieving and highly-motivated undergraduate BME students for either doctoral studies or a variety of advanced professional positions. The program is highly selective with admission based on academic performance as well as undergraduate research. Juniors can be admitted into the accelerated degree program if they satisfy the requirements outlined in the Graduate Bulletin. The requirements for the accelerated program are the same as the requirements for the B.E. and M.S. degree, except that two graduate 500-level courses replace two 300-level electives, so that six graduate credits are counted toward the undergraduate degree.

Graduates are prepared for entry into professions in biomedical engineering, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology, as well as careers in academia and government. Potential employers include colleges and universities, hospitals, government, research institutes and laboratories, and private industry.

Program Educational Objectives

The undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering at Stony Brook University has the following four specific program educationalobjectives:

  • Our graduates will apply skills and insight gained from a curriculum integrating engineering and biology to biomedically related fields in sectors including academia, industry, medicine, law, and/or government.
  • Our graduates will strive to become inspirational leaders who make socially and ethically responsible decisions that beneficially impact health and society from local communities to the global population.
  • Our graduates will use scientific research and collaborations to develop biomedical technologies that can be translated into cost-effective clinical solutions to enhance diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of health issues.
  • Our graduates will remain lifelong learners, continue to grow professionally and personally throughout their careers, and be partners to grow future generations of biomedical engineers.
