Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes.

Biomedical engineers combine engineering principles with medical and biological sciences, with the goal of designing and creating equipment, devices, computer systems, and software to be used in healthcare.

Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the Biomedical Engineering department is internationally recognized for its research, discovery, and invention in the area of biomedical engineering, with research strengths in biomaterials, biomedical devices, neural engineering, and cardiovascular engineering.

Student Experiences at the U

Students can pursue original research projects or student involvement through the following:

  • Office of Undergraduate Research
  • Biomedical Engineering Entrepreneurship
  • College of Engineering Entrepreneurship programs
  • Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
  • Society of Women Engineers

Career Opportunities

Biomedical engineers work in a number of fields:

  • Bioinstrumentation (using electronics to develop medical devices)
  • Biomaterials (using materials to develop medical devices)
  • Biomechanics (using mechanics to solve medical problems)
  • Rehabilitation engineering (creating devices to assist with mental and physical rehabilitation)
  • Systems physiology (how an organism’s internal systems function and respond to changes)
