The curriculum prepares students for careers in the fast growing biotechnology and biomedical engineering industries and for advanced study such as medical schoolschool or Ph. D graduate programs. Students are required to take courses in engineering, life sciences and liberal arts. This combined-degree plan requires 163 credit hours. The curriculum is offered jointly by the College of Engineering and the College of Science.
Biomedical engineers use quantitative methods and innovation to analyze and to solve problems in biology and medicine. Students choose the biomedical engineering field to be of service to people, to partake in the excitement of working with living systems, and to apply advanced technology to complex problems of medical care.
Through this program, students learn the essentials of life science, engineering theory, and the analytical and practical tools that enable them to be successful in the biotechnology and biomedical engineering industries. The program includes coursework in the basic sciences, core engineering, biomedical engineering, and advanced biotechnology disciplines. Both didactic classroom lectures and hand-on laboratory experience are emphasized. Students are also required to take general educational courses in literature, fine arts, history, political science and social science.
