Biomedical Engineering

The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers five academic program options for biomedical engineering:

The BS in Biomedical Engineering prepares students for a variety of career paths. Students will build a foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and traditional engineering disciplines, then follow with studies of physiological processes while developing technologies to interact with biological systems. We also offer a combined bachelor’s/master’s program that allows students to earn a master’s degree with only one additional year of study. 

Lasting impact will arise from successfully integrating the analytical, modeling, and systems approaches of engineering to the complex, multi-scale problems of biology and medicine. Those trained to do this will be uniquely positioned to address new and exciting opportunities. We offer a master of science or doctorate in biomedical engineering or a master of engineering (MEng). In addition, the department offers the combined MS/MBA and MD/PhD degrees, given jointly with the Olin Business School and the School of Medicine, respectively.
