The Biomedical Engineering curriculum is designed to perpare graduates for the diverse field of Biomedical Engineering.

  • The interdisciplinary curriculum will stress mastery of mathematical methods, programming ability in Matlab, LabView, R and other languages, and extensive experiences in fabrication of prototype medical devices.
  • Though this program will incorporate strong, broad based engineering fundamentals.
  • Program research will focus on biomedical optics and sensors, with applications in oncology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, dermatology, and other areas of medicine.
  • Students will learn critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and management skills, and develop an understanding of the increasing importance of leadership and ethics in the engineering field.

The curriculum includes 133 Credit Hours, including 52 credit hours of engineering content. In addition to math, science courses and labs and the Bridges Common Learning Experience, students will take the following engineering courses (courses subject to change):

  • Introduction to Biomedical Engineering (BME)
  • Introduction to Programming for Engineers
  • Electronics I
  • Electronics II
  • BioSignals and Systems
  • Biofluid Mechanics
  • Engineering Computation
  • Introduction to Biomaterials
  • Thermodynamics
  • Research in BME
  • BME Electives
