Bioengineering & Biomedical


Career Description

Where would modern medicine be without the contributions of biomedical engineering? Imagine hospitals operating without X-rays, ultrasound, EKGs, and the thousands of high-tech procedures and devices that diagnose conditions, sustain health, and fight disease. As a biomedical engineer, you’ll make a real difference in the lives of others. You might develop artificial lenses that restore sight to the blind, radiation treatments that fight cancer, or incubators that keep premature babies alive.
