The B.S. in bioengineering program provides the solid background in engineering and life sciences students need to pursue graduate school, medical school or careers in industry.
After completing one year in General Engineering, students choose either the biomaterials or bioelectrical concentration; each focuses on biomedical applications. Both curricula include courses in biology, biochemistry and physiology, and courses in the core bioengineering fields of biomaterials, bioinstrumentation, biomechanics, biomedical design and tissue engineering.
Independent research opportunities available to undergraduate students are:
