Overview

Discover how to design and build biomedical equipment and devices for diagnosing medical problems and improving health for those in need.

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 Biomedical Engineering program at University of Hartford 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.)
