Program description

Biomedical Engineering

Innovate engineering principles and technologies to design ways of improving human and animal health and quality of life. Study anatomy, physiology and human kinetics, and courses in electronics, mechanics and computer science. Examine biosystems from molecular to a full-body scale to understand the repercussions of disease or injury. Pursue a rewarding career in public or private sectors of the healthcare industry.

Be part of medical innovation. The growing field of Biomedical Engineering fuses engineering design and problem solving to improve human health.

Biomedical Engineers apply the principles and technologies associated with engineering to design innovative ways to improve human health and quality of life. In this hands-on program, you will study anatomy, physiology and pathology as well as courses in electronics, mechanics, and computer science.

Examine bio-systems from molecular to a full body scale to understand what happens when something goes wrong, as in the case of injury or disease. Biomedical Engineering can also be an entry point into medical school.
