BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

ABOUT Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineers study and perform research on the engineering aspects of biological systems to create new devices and procedures to improve health and quality of life.

Our program allows undergraduate students to specialize in biomechanics, biomaterials and tissue engineering, or instrumentation, signals and imaging.

The graduate program is designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of students with varied backgrounds and prepare them for a career industry, government or academia.
