The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a BS in Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical engineers combine the problem solving ability of engineers with the knowledge of the biological and medical fields to develop new solutions for improving human health, healthcare, and quality of life for all people. Biomedical engineers work in research and development, product design, manufacturing, operations, service, technical sales and marketing, consulting, education, and environmental problem solving.

The undergraduate program provides the scope of knowledge and training for employment in the field and also forms the basis for further study at the graduate level. The curriculum emphasizes four main areas (Imaging, Tissue Engineering, Sensor Materials and Devices, and Computation), and allows for students to obtain depth in areas of their choice through technical electives. The Department of Biomedical Engineering brings together faculty members from many disciplines to provide an education that will enable our graduates to succeed.

Biomedical Engineering Program Educational Objectives:
The program educational objectives of the biomedical engineering program are that:
1. Graduates will use their scientific, technical, and communication skills to contribute to the achievement of the goals and objectives of employers of biomedical engineers.
2. Graduates will continue their professional development in biomedical engineering or medicine, including professional licensure, continuing education, and/or graduate study.

The program is designed to serve both students who intend to enter industry directly and others who plan to continue their education through formal graduate study, including medical school.
