Department of Biomedical Engineering
The department offers a four-year engineering curriculum leading to a B.S. in biomedical engineering, which prepares students for a wide variety of careers in industry, hospitals or research laboratories, or for further education in graduate school. The department also offers a four-year engineering curriculum that, together with required premedical courses, leads to a B.S. degree in biomedical engineering: premedical. It is one of many majors that can serve as preparation for further training in medical, veterinary, or allied health professions. It is also suitable for students interested in pursuing graduate work in biomedical engineering, and other biomedical areas such a physiology, neurosciences and bioinformatics. The curriculum has less engineering content, and more of a biological sciences focus than the biomedical engineering major.
