The Department of Biomedical Engineering.


The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a four-year undergraduate program leading to the Bachelors of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a multidisciplinary field that addresses problems at the interface of engineering, medicine, and the life sciences. Biomedical engineers have an impact on all fields of medicine. They design medical devices, implants and prostheses, they develop new biomaterials or drug delivery systems, they use engineering principles to develop cures by modifying cells and tissues. 

The BME program at the University of Miami was the first of its kind in Florida, with the first class of B.S.B.E. students graduating in 1993. It has been continuously accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) since 1997. Graduates of the biomedical engineering undergraduate program find employment in industry or continue their studies either in graduate school or in a professional school in medicine and other health-related disciplines (such as dentistry, optometry, orthotics), law or business. 

Some special features of the program include the small class size and open-door policy of the faculty, which facilitates student-faculty interaction. The Department has very strong ties with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and with industry. Undergraduate students have a wide range of research and internship opportunities in some of the leading research laboratories in their respective field. The Department strongly encourages undergraduate student participation in research and professional activities.
