Biomedical Engineering has emerged as a medium combining medicine and engineering to provide materials, tools and techniques advancing health care research, diagnosis and treatment. Under the auspices of this interdisciplinary degree students who wish to focus their engineering careers on assisting in the struggle against illness and disease may concentrate their efforts in Biomedical Engineering.

About

The Biomedical Engineering Program encompasses three concentration options: the standard option, a premed option, and an electrical engineering option. The standard option presents the student with a solid and diverse background in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, biomaterials, and instrumentation aspects of the field. The premed concentration modifies the standard option to include Organic Chemistry, to allow the student to pursue a career in the health professions. 

The electrical engineering concentration is designed for those who wish to focus on the design, evaluation, and maintenance of electronic medical instrumentation. Electrical Engineering concentration students who choose an appropriate professional elective, and achieve the required grades, will be granted a minor in Electrical Engineering upon graduation. All concentrations share the same basic program requirements, with additional courses for their special interests.

The engineering design experience is distributed over the entire engineering curriculum. This experience begins in the first year with engineering and design and continues through and culminates in Senior Research and the senior Biomedical Engineering Design Project I and II. The senior-level design work ensures that the students have mastered preparatory engineering and engineering science courses.

All Biomedical Engineering program graduates are required to complete courses designed to give the students a grounding in anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, biofluids, bioinstrumentation, and the structure of materials used by biomedical engineers. Along with the engineering courses, students are required to obtain a background in solid mechanics and electrical engineering.

Accreditation

The program in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by ABET - Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC).
