WHY STUDY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING?
Biomedical engineering allows a student to work as an engineer at the intersection of technology and the biomedical sciences, by integrating physiology, biology, and medicine to develop methods of solving clinical problems in medicine and surgery. A bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering is the first step toward a rewarding engineering career in the biomedical engineering industry, the pharmaceutical industry and medical centers or a promising opportunity for graduate study in biomedical engineering, bioinformatics, medicine, dentistry, business and law.

WHY STUDY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING AT NJIT?
New Jersey is home to some of the most exciting biomedical engineering in the world, and NJIT is right in the middle of the activity. Located in the University Heights district, NJIT is within walking distance of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and University Hospital. This is the flagship facility of the state's medical university and adds a new dimension to biomedical engineering education. Within a block from campus are the world-class Public Health Research Institute and the nationally renowned Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers-Newark. Cooperative research is performed with companies, rehabilitation institutes and medical centers within easy commute from NJIT.  
 
WHAT WILL I DO IN MY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING CLASSES?
NJIT offers an exciting education in biomedical engineering. New studio-based courses combine faculty lectures with hands-on experience. Theory is learned in the context of real-life applications. Students are encouraged to explore the breadth of the field through many opportunities -- design new instrumentation, study advanced computer applications in medicine and pharmacology, research new biomaterials, apply laser technology to treat disease, build micro and nano machines, and work on new prosthetic devices.

WHAT TYPES OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH CAN I DO?
Students are welcome in NJIT's state-of-the-art research laboratories where they work alongside faculty and graduate students, and contribute to original research and development. This learning also extends beyond the classroom to research internships in nearby medical facilities and industrial internships with some of the most dynamic companies in the nation.

WHAT AREAS OF CONCENTRATION ARE AVAILABLE?
The BS in Biomedical Engineering offers several tracks that help students specialize in an area of their interest: biomechanics, biomaterials, bioinstrumentation, and biocomputing/modeling.
