Biomedical Engineering Major

Do you want to contribute to the world of medicine and health by creative problem solving?

At a glance

The Biomedical Engineering is a five-year, dual-degree program combining engineering, biology, and medicine. In the first two years, you’ll take introductory biomedical engineering courses, as well as foundational math and science courses. The third and fourth years solidify expertise in traditional engineering while building strength in biomedical engineering and physical sciences courses. Your fifth year culminates in a hands-on project with an interdisciplinary team of peers, where you’ll collaborate on a real-world engineering project from start to finish.

This is a five-year major. You’ll choose from Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering to combine with your Biomedical Engineering education, and graduate with degrees in both.
