Academic Programs

Biomedical engineering combines medical needs with engineering expertise for the enhancement of health care. Research conducted by members of the department is clustered into three areas:

  • Basic Research in Engineered Tissue Model Systems
  • Diagnostic Bioimaging and Sensor Systems
  • Therapeutic and Reparative Neurotechnology

Combined BS/MS

This accelerated combined degree program provides academically talented students an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in a shorter period of time. The BS/MS degree allows you to ‘double-count’ graduate courses toward both degrees, thus reducing the time it would normally take to graduate by a semester or more.
