This program will prepare graduates for careers in the biomedical engineering field with a specialization in biomechanical skills. This interdisciplinary degree combines classical mechanical engineering and biological sciences. With a biomedical engineering degree, graduates are prepared to work at companies that design and manufacture medical devices including joints and tissues for the human body.
- Our graduates will be employed in Biomedical Engineering related fields or in other career fields in industry, business, academe, government, or non-profit organizations.
- Our graduates will continue to enhance their professional skills by participating in professional organizations, completing additional college courses, or completing industry-sponsored short courses.
