Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering stresses the application of the principles and practices of engineering, science, and mathematics in solving clinical problems in medicine and surgery. Biomedical engineering students can concentrate on the chemical, computer, electrical, industrial or mechanical engineering aspects of biomedical engineering. Students who graduate with a degree in Biomedical Engineering have the background for employment by a medical instrument or device company, for biomedical research, or for continued education toward a more advanced degree in biomedical engineering or medicine.
