Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineerThe curriculum follows a standard first-year engineering sequence of mathematics, sciences (including chemistry, physics), English, and introductory engineering courses. These topics have follow-up courses during the second year, and expand to include life sciences (biology, organic chemistry) as well as engineering sciences and initial biomedical engineering courses. Life sciences and engineering sciences continue in the 3rd year, but the focus is upon biomedical engineering with biomedical measurement and techniques labs, and the “domain” courses.

BME Domains:

  • Bioimaging
  • Biomaterials
  • Biomechanics
  • Biotransport
  • Micro-/Nano-Biotechnologies
  • Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Engineering

The 4th year has three distinctive features: a requirement for students to take an advanced-level BME course as a follow-up to one of the domain classes; an individually designed and approved 2-course sequence of technical engineering electives, and the two-semester team design project. These design projects will be based on interdisciplinary student engineering teams with 4-5 members who will work with a specific disabled client from the local community.
