Advancing Human Health with Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering (BME) department offers a unique additional major (and a minor) in Biomedical Engineering. The major focuses on applying engineering principles to advance our understanding of living systems and to improve human health through the development of medical devices and systems.

It's feasible to complete the BME additional major, along with one of the traditional engineering disciplines, in four years. The BME electives allow students to explore the biomedical imaging, biomechanics, tissue engineering, biomaterials and cellular and molecular biotechnology aspects of biomedical engineering in-depth. 

Alumni from BME are employed in the pharmaceutical, bio-technical and medical device industrial sectors, as well as clinical healthcare settings. A significant number of graduates also choose to pursue graduate studies or medical careers.
