About Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical engineers utilize the principles of engineering and biology to solve problems and develop systems, devices and products that can be used to improve our quality of life. As a biomedical engineer, you could be involved in designing the latest artificial organs and joints, creating devices to detect and treat disease, or developing synthetic skin and bone grafts. Biomedical engineering (BME) is one of the fastest growing engineering disciplines – with very promising job prospects. Biomedical engineers typically work in the industry, academia, research facilities or government agencies.
Potential Employment and Research Opportunities include:
- Tissue regenerations
- Biocompatible implants and prostheses
- Diagnose devices
- Therapeutic devices
- Drug delivery
The mission of the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering (BSBME) program is to produce graduates of superior technical, professional, and scientific background in biomedical engineering who can perform effectively and embrace education as a lifelong endeavor.
The Biomedical Engineering program seeks to graduate students who are prepared to pursue meaningful careers and make significant contributions to the biomedical field.
