The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers accredited program leading to BS degrees in Biomedical Engineering (BSBE) with a Mechanical Concentration. The program is a broad, interdisciplinary field that applies the science and technology of engineering to problems in biology, life sciences, medicine and biotechnology. The program covers a wide spectrum of activities which includes the development of artificial organs and limbs, implantable medical devices, tissue engineering, biomedical instrumentation, computing in medical research and diagnosis, signal or image processing, clinical engineering, rehabilitation engineering and cardiovascular, neurological, and respiratory engineering. The Biomedical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The objectives of the BSBE – Mechanical Concentration program is to prepare graduates who, within the first four to six years after graduation are, either:

  • Working as a professional in the biomedical engineering or a related field, or
  • Continuing education to advance their careers through professional development activities or through the pursuit of advanced degrees

The degree has four concentrations are:

  • Biomaterials and Tissue (BSBE-BMERT)
  • Electrical (BSBE-BMERE)
  • Mechanical (BSBE-BMERM) and
  • Premedical (BSBEP-BMERP)


Students in the Mechanical concentration are required to complete the following courses:
