Degree Requirements and Course Offerings

Biomedical Engineering  

The biomedical engineering major is designed to provide a solid, interdisciplinary foundation in life and physical sciences, mathematics and engineering while allowing for flexibility in the upper division requirements to encourage students to explore Specializations within the field. Our curriculum is designed to impart knowledge of contemporary issues at the forefront of biomedical engineering research.

Biomedical engineers have a wide range of employment opportunities in places like industry, hospitals, academic research and teaching institutions, national laboratories and government regulatory agencies, consulting and finance. Some of our alumni have continued on to graduate and professional study in biomedical, mechanical, and electrical engineering, biological sciences, science writing​, health professions (medical, dental, optometry, prosthetics)​ and law school​.

Biomedical Engineering Minor

The Biomedical Engineering minor is restricted to students currently enrolled in the College of Engineering. The intent is to build upon the existing core strengths in other engineering majors by adding expertise in biomedical applications. This additional training makes students more attractive to employers in the medical device industry, and positions engineering students for graduate training in health related applications of engineering.
