About this program

BSE Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering combines the study of basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering with the life sciences to understand, analyze, and design physiological and medical systems. Some of the most well-known examples of biomedical engineering developments are the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer assisted tomography (CAT), ultrasonic imaging scanners, kidney dialysis units, pacemakers, heart valves, and vascular grafts.

At Mercer, our biomedical engineers are trained to:

  • Find solutions to diverse medical problems
  • Contribute to improved healthcare
  • Analyze human and prosthetic performance in clinical environments
  • Design new therapeutic and diagnostic instruments that permit treatment and visualization of internal organs
  • Develop new materials and devices to supplant or augment diseased or malfunctioning organs and systems
