Forge your education with your own hands by designing projects in cutting-edge laboratories beginning in your first semester. Learn from internationally renowned faculty in small classes as you explore research experiences. By the time you graduate, you will have opportunities to work alongside medical professionals on real-world health care problems, conduct research, attend conferences, publish scientific papers and participate in cross-disciplinary project design and creation.
The Biomedical Engineering Laboratory in the Center for Advanced Engineering includes:
Gain real-world knowledge through key biomedical engineering courses including:
Motion Capture Laboratory: Use the same motion tracking technology as seen in the "Avengers" movie to analyze human motion.
Biomedical Heat and Mass Transfer: Learn how the principles of biomedical heat and mass transfer apply to dialysis machines and heart-lung machines to keep patients alive.
Bioengineering Laboratory: Conduct experiments on how to safely return to sports after ACL reconstruction.
“As a research and development intern at Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary company, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, I was presented with opportunities I never imagined I would receive. I participated in design projects, test development and product testing on various tissues. I got to experience how my studies are utilized in a professional engineering environment.”
