About BME

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
  • Imaging
  • 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.

Outside the classroom, undergraduate gain real-world experience through research, industry internships and practical experiences.  As early as the first year, students begin to explore BME research labs, and by the fourth year, they are performing cutting-edge and often publishable research work.  This experiential learning will prove invaluable as students seek employment and/or graduate and professional school admission.  Programs such as industry internships and co-ops will provide opportunities for students to apply their knowledge to solving real-world problems.

Potential Employment and Research Opportunities include:
· Tissue regenerations
· Biocompatible implants and prostheses
· Diagnose devices
· Therapeutic devices
· Imaging
· Drug delivery

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The educational objectives of the BME Undergraduate Program are for our graduates to be functioning professionals who have:

  1. Gained admission to graduate or professional school, or gained employment in engineering and/or health-related professions.
  2. Pursued opportunities for professional growth, development, and service.

Student Outcomes:

Outcome 1.  an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex BME problems by

                     applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

Outcome 2.  an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

Outcome 3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

Outcome 4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering

                     situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of

                     engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

Outcome 5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide

                     leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan

                     tasks, and meet objectives

Outcome 6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

Outcome 7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate

                     learning strategies
