The Biomedical Engineering (BS-MS) program at Wichita State University puts you closer to a high-paying career designing the medical technology that improves our quality of life.

Biomedical engineering students gain a strong foundation in general education, math, science, general and biomedical engineering coursework. The program offers three concentrations: biodevices and instrumentation, bioenergy and lifespan engineering.


Fueled in large part by our aging society, the demand for biomedical engineers is increasing. Many graduates with a bachelor of science degree go on to graduate studies, medical or professional schools. 

They work for pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, hospitals and rehabilitation centers, and biomedical and bioengineering research institutes.


The program is accredited by ABET.
