Department of Biomedical Engineering

The objectives of the Biomedical Engineering program are to produce high-quality graduates with a broad-based education in engineering, life sciences and natural sciences applied to the fields of biomechanics, biomaterials, bioinstrumentation, and biomolecular and cellular engineering who:

  1. Are well prepared for further graduate studies, careers in the biomedical or biotechnology industries or entry into medical or other professional schools;
  2. Will make significant contributions in biomedical industries, medicine and other sectors;
  3. Will apply acquired knowledge appropriately, work professionally with others, effectively communicate ideas and technical information and continue to learn and improve their knowledge base and skills.

These objectives are met through a modern and comprehensive curriculum taught by a well prepared, professionally active and dedicated faculty. In addition, the program actively supports professional development among the students through individual study and research opportunities, cooperative education and internships, and student society activities. These goals are measured by the success of the graduates in finding rewarding professional employment, and by admission to respected graduate and professional schools.

Design is an important part of biomedical engineering and design skills are emphasized throughout the curriculum, beginning the first year in the program, and culminating in the two-semester senior design course sequence that requires application of a wide range of engineering methods to a focused design project. Other courses in biomedical engineering and in supporting disciplines include examples of the application of the principles to design, as well as specific design exercises. The biomedical engineering curriculum is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Before commencing coursework in the department, students must be admitted to the major or minor.
