Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering

Undergraduate apply

In 2010, the College of Engineering initiated an undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering.  This academically intensive program integrates engineering and biomedical sciences throughout the 4-year curriculum.  Students also work on design and problem solving applied to biomedical engineering challenges during each semester of their program.

The program includes a strong, broad foundation in engineering and biomedical sciences, followed by depth in an area of each student's choosing.   Three areas of concentration are available:

  • biomaterials
  • biomechanics
  • biomedical instrumentation

Students who wish have the opportunity to participate in biomedical engineering research during their undergraduate program.



The Undergraduate Handbook is the overall guide to the baccalaureate program.

Additional advising information is available to support decision making for both current and future students.



Admission to the program is by separate application. You will not be considered an applicant for the BME program until both (2) applications are submitted.
