Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary field in which engineering principles and tools are applied to solve biomedical problems. By its very nature, it is broad and requires a depth of understanding in engineering as well as in physiology and other biological sciences. Biomedical Engineering plays an increasingly important role in medicine and in projects that range from basic research in physiology to advances in biotechnology and the improvement of health care delivery. As a student, you can find more information below that pertains directly to your major.
Specific curriculum and technical elective inquiries may be directed to your assigned Faculty Advisor.
It is important to declare your concentration to ensure your Degree Progress Report and Academic Progress Level is up to date for registration.
Please note: a change of concentration will appear on your transcript, so it is important you are confident with your decision.
In order to declare your concentration, please complete the Concentration Declaration (e-form)
