A foundation fit for tomorrow’s emerging leaders
Our undergraduate programs combine a solid foundation of engineering theory and fundamentals with hands-on research and design. With a focus on supporting transdisciplinary collaboration, entrepreneurship, and an inclusive environment for all of our students, the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics creates an educational experience fit for tomorrow’s emerging leaders.
Undergraduate degree offerings
- B.S. in biomedical engineering
- B.S. in engineering science and mechanics
- Minor in biomedical engineering
- Minor in engineering science and mechanics
- Undergraduate/graduate (UG/G) option
An undergraduate/graduate option allows undergraduate students to use courses taken during the senior year to count towards both the bachelor’s and graduate degrees.
Faculty in both biomedical engineering and engineering science and mechanics work closely across their respective disciplines, as do students enrolled in our programs.
Equipped for exploration,
prepared to problem solve
With a degree in biomedical engineering or engineering science and mechanics, our graduates work on — and solve — some of the most complex engineering problems in the world. While a number of our undergraduates go on to enroll in advanced programs of study, many find fulfilling careers in industry, government agencies, and basic research.
