Resources for the Major

The B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering is designed to provide students with an understanding of common fundamental methodologies and the ability to develop quantitative approaches to one of four biomedical engineering tracks: Bioimaging, Biomechanics and Mechanobiology, Biomolecular Engineering, and Systems Biology. The flexible course structure of the major permits students to bridge basic concepts in the life sciences and traditional areas of engineering while gaining a comprehensive understanding of biomedical engineering as a field of study. In BME, engineering methods and strategies are used to address biomedical problems ranging from studies of physiological function to the development of artificial organs and new biomaterials.
