As a student in the biomedical engineering program at the Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, you will build a strong foundation in the principles of engineering and biology.
Instruction is offered in such areas as cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinstrumentation, thermodynamics of living systems, transport in living systems, biomechanics, tissue engineering, and biomaterials. Students may also benefit from the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty who are conducting ground-breaking research in the areas of tissue engineering, cancer diagnosis, nanobiotechnology, drug and material toxicology, and biomaterials. Scholarships are available.
Students interested in applying to the biomedical engineering program can do so upon completion of their first year in the Statler College's freshman engineering program. Students accepted in to the program will be notified by May 16. The enrollment in the program is currently limited to 40 students per year, which are selected based on overall GPA.
