Learning Beyond the Classroom

There are many beneficial opportunities for learning outside of the classroom environment for both undergraduate and graduate students.


The Department of Biomedical Engineering has a strong internship program that provides students with the opportunity to get real-world experience and marketable career skills, while companies get access to quality interns with a record of demonstrated academic excellence. The program was launched with initial funding by the Whitaker Foundation.

Twenty-four students were placed in Industrial Internships in biomedical engineering companies in New Jersey in the past year, gaining experience in such areas as biosignal processing, computer hardware design, prosthetic device design and manufacture and biomaterials research and development.

Companies participating have included:

Boston Scientific
Integra Life Sciences
Supertron Technologies
Stryker Howmedica

Industry participants have cited several benefits to their companies:

Access to top quality interns
Early identification of future employees
Opportunity to establish relationships with key faculty
