Biomedical Engineering

Department Chair: M. Saleh Keshawarz
Program Director: Mike Nowak

The practice of medicine has seen an accelerated incorporation of technical innovations. Biomedical Engineering 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.

We focus on the mechanics of the human body:

  • Implants
  • The Mechanical Properties of Soft and Hard Tissue
  • Joint Mechanics
  • Prosthetics
  • Orthotics
  • Devices to Aid Persons with Disabilities
  • Ergonomics
  • Biofluids
  • Finite Element Analysis
