Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary field of study that provides students with the training in biology, physical sciences, and engineering necessary to apply advanced instrumentation, modeling capability, and engineering systems concepts to the solution of complex biomedical problems. The faculties in engineering, physiology and neurobiology, psychology, materials science, medicine, and dental medicine cooperate in providing the necessary basic training and a variety of research opportunities.
The Biomedical Engineering course of study in Electrical Engineering is available to students with an undergraduate degree in a related field (not necessarily engineering). Because of the varied interests and training of students in Biomedical engineering, plans of study are flexible and broad in scope, and are designed to meet the needs of the individual student. They normally will include courses in the biomedical sciences, engineering, and computer science.
