Biomedical Engineering (BSE)
Program Director: Michael Nowak
The practice of medicine has seen an accelerated incorporation of technical innovations. Biomedical Engineering (BME) has emerged as a medium combining medicine and engineering to provide materials, tools and techniques advancing health care research, diagnosis and treatment. Under the auspices of the Interdisciplinary degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering, highly motivated students who wish to focus their engineering careers on assisting in the struggle against illness and disease may concentrate their efforts in Biomedical Engineering.
Our biomedical engineering programs focus on the mechanics of the human body including: implants, joint mechanics, orthotics, and ergonomics. Focus is also on finite elements, the mechanical properties of soft and hard tissue, prosthetics, and biofluids.
Biomedical Engineering (standard option)
The standard option in Biomedical Engineering is designed to present a student with the breadth and depth required to enter the field with a Bachelor’s degree or enter graduate programs. It allows a student to have solid grounding in the mechanics, fluids, instrumentation, and materials aspects of the field.
Biomedical Engineering (Pre-med Option)
The pre-health professions options assists students who wish to enter medical school and other similar graduate programs. Students will take a full year of Organic Chemistry as part of this program.
Biomedical Engineering (Electrical Engineering Concentration)
The Electrical Engineering Concentration within the Biomedical Engineering Program is designed to assist those students who wish to pursue a career or graduate programs which focus on the electrical side of the field. This includes (but is not limited to) the maintenance and evaluation of electrical instrumentation used in all aspects of health related fields.
The program in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by ABET - Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC).
