Biomedical Engineering - Premedical Concentration, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
University rank #801 (QS) , FL,
Biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field at the interface of traditional engineering disciplines and biological sciences. Biomedical engineers apply engineering principles and techniques to solve problems in medicine and biology. 


The two educational objectives of the Biomedical Engineering program are achieved via the implementation of a curriculum with four parallel concentrations which include a common core and concentration-specific courses. The core curriculum is designed to provide a broad foundation in the basic sciences and in engineering. Concentration-specific courses provide the depth required to be proficient engineers.

The four concentrations are:

  • Electrical (E),
  • Mechanical (M),
  • Biomaterials and Tissue (B) and
  • Premedical (P).

The Premed concentration provides training in biomedical engineering and allows for students to take courses that are commonly required for admission to medical school.
