About

Bioengineers devise innovative solutions to today's most pressing health-care challenges. Through an understanding of the intersection of biology and engineering, our students are uniquely prepared to meet these challenges. The Bioengineering program is offered by Washington State University.

Overview

The Bioengineering program is offered by Washington State University. Bioengineering applies engineering methods and concepts to living systems and utilizes biological methods and concepts to improve engineering practice. It is among the fastest growing disciplines in the nation, with many exciting and diverse career options.

Strengths of the program

  • Graduates from the program have many options for professional practice and advanced study.
  • Learn to work as a team to create new products and technologies.
  • Pursue opportunities to participate in faculty research projects.
  • Gain an edge from caring, knowledgeable faculty who are geared toward student success and are available to advise students.
  • WSU’s program benefits from strong ties to veterinary medicine on the Pullman campus and human medicine in Spokane.
  • Courses are selected from subjects in several engineering and science fields, offering a strong integration in both areas.

Bioengineering is a rigorous engineering degree program that incorporates biological sciences into engineering problem solving and design.

By appropriately choosing electives, bioengineering students can focus their bioengineering education in any of a variety of areas that fit their particular interests, including molecular or cellular bioengineering, biomechanics, bioinstrumentation and device design, transport phenomena, bioengineering analysis, or computational algorithms to improve the lives of individuals.

A major in bioengineering, together with the University's pre-medical or pre-veterinary medicine advising, can serve as ideal preparation for medical or veterinary school.

Career

Careers available to graduates span engineering, biomedical, and other biologically based careers. Employers of graduates include medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, biotechnology product manufacturers, government agencies, research laboratories, universities, and product testing laboratories.

Graduates with strong engineering interests are employed as design engineers, quality engineers, sales engineers, and product development engineers.

Many graduates enter advanced study in biomedical engineering or other engineering disciplines or apply for professional schools in human or animal medicine. With advanced degrees, graduates frequently enter research careers. Moreover, bioengineering provides a successful pathway to careers in medicine.
