The Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering provides students and practicing engineers with experience needed to succeed.



We are part of the FIU College of Engineering and Computing, one of the top engineering schools in Florida and in the country.

Learning Goals

After completing your degree, you will have learned the following:

  • Ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems (including those associated with the interaction between living and nonliving systems) by applying principles of engineering, physical (calculus based physics, chemistry) and life sciences (biology, human physiology), and mathematics (through differential equations and statistics).
  • Ability to apply engineering design to realize/produce solutions that meet specified biomedical engineering problems and needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, health, safety, and societal contexts.
  • Ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • Ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation to measure, analyze and interpret data from living and non-living systems, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • Ability to acquire new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies in acquiring techniques and skills necessary for biomedical engineering practice; including the ability to model and perform engineering analyses of biomedical devices, systems, components and processes.

Careers and Salaries


The students can choose electives appropriately to concentrate in particular areas of biomedical engineering. Concentrations in our department include a general track, biomechanics and biomaterials, biosignals and systems, and tissue engineering/pre-med.
