Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and methods to define and solve problems in medicine and biology.

Biomedical engineers design develop and maintain instruments, devices, and software used in healthcare; develop new procedures using knowledge from many technical sources; or conduct research needed to solve clinical problems.


The curriculum begins with a broad foundation in engineering, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biology. This preparatory work is complemented by parallel training in programming for introductory courses in engineering design, electric circuits and engineering mechanics. Foundational work is followed by more advanced engineering coursework and laboratory experiences, wherein students study advanced electronics courses like analog and digital electronics, microprocessors, controls, computing, and embedded systems. A variety of advanced elective courses allow opportunities for specialization in the senior years.
