Overview

Under the auspices of the Interdisciplinary degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering, highly motivated students who wish to focus their engineering careers on assisting in the struggle against illness and disease may concentrate their efforts in Biomedical Engineering.

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.
