The educational programs in biomedical engineering integrate physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational sciences with engineering principles to study biology, medicine, behavior, and health. Students at all levels of study learn to develop practical applications of scientific knowledge for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, for patient rehabilitation, and for improving health.
NJIT's Department of Biomedical Engineering is pioneering an innovative approach to education -- a hands-on, studio-based program. Check out the degree programs and courses offered in biomedical engineering.
