About the Program
Students in Biomedical Engineering learn to apply tools from engineering and life sciences to design solutions for challenges in human biology, medicine, and healthcare delivery.
Biomedical Engineering students complete coursework in math, physics, chemistry and the life science in combination with engineering principles and design courses to understand the physical and chemical properties of human tissues, computational modeling and analyses, molecular transport, biomechanics, human physiology, and biomedical systems and instrumentation. Essential experiential and practical training includes small group problem-based learning, study abroad programs, internships with a broad range of medically related companies, research in faculty labs, and engineering design projects to solve real medical needs.
The home for the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering is a state-of-the-art building specifically designed to enhance both teaching and research. The $25-million, 91,000-square-foot facility accommodates the continued growth of biomedical engineering in the 21st century.
Programs of focus and faculty expertise include imaging, instrumentation, engineered biomaterials and biomechanics, and quantitative cellular and systems engineering.
