Biomedical Engineering

The biomedical concentration is a cross-disciplinary program track that integrates engineering, chemistry, and life sciences to study and solve problems relating to medicine and healthcare. Inventions such as CAT scanners, artificial hips, and pacemakers are all products of biomedical engineering. Students that select the biomedical concentration will take all of the required courses for a BSE along with the following electives:
