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.

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.
