The Bachelor's of Science in Biomedical Engineering is a flexible and versatile degree that weaves together core engineering curricula, pre-med classes like anatomy and biochemistry, and new courses specifically designed for the biomedical engineering degree. The program is designed to prepare students for careers in the fast-growing biomedical sector. The degree also allows students who are considering medical school to fulfill pre-med requirements while opening an alternate door to jobs in engineering.
