Biomedical engineering applies engineering principles to biology and medicine as a means of designing and developing equipment, devices, and software used in healthcare. Biomedical engineers often work alongside medical doctors, mechanical engineers, and researchers to advance healthcare, from prevention, to diagnosis and recovery.
As a biomedical engineering major, you will gain analytical, problem-solving, technical, teamwork, and communication skills. Students may pursue careers as clinical engineers, genetic engineers, test engineers, equipment technicians, researchers, and entrepreneurs. Students may also pursue advanced degrees in graduate or professional school (medical, dental, pharmacy).
The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers the following undergraduate degrees:
