A Quick Look at Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering students take the traditional fundamental core courses in chemistry, mathematics, physics and humanities and by the end of the Sophomore year select an area of biomedical engineering on which to concentrate.

Concentrations:

  • Biomaterials, Tissue engineering: including stem cell research and implantable materials.
  • Bioinstrumentation: including biomedical signal processing, biomedical computer hardware design, BioMEMS and medical imaging processing.
  • Biomechanics: biomechanics of living tissue, physiological mechanics of fluids, kinematics.

Developing new methods of diagnosing and treating medical and surgical problems.  Working with engineers, scientists, physicians and surgeons in industry and medical centers.

  • Rehabilitation 
  • Electrocardiograms 
  • Organ Function  
  • Biomaterials 
  • Biomechanics 
  • Motion Analysis 
  • Image Processing
