I want to learn more about Gannon University's Biomedical Engineering program.
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.
This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Bioengineering, Biomedical and Similarly Named Engineering Programs Program Criteria.
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.

"Throughout my four years at Gannon, I was able to experience a lot, including being a part of the Gannon women’s soccer team and attending different academic conferences with BMES and SWE. I now work at OrthoPediatrics designing orthopedic implants for kids around the world."
Alexis Stahl '18 Biomedical Engineering
"Gannon provided me with an amazing support system, as well as the opportunity to build skills that have since helped me tremendously and provided me with the confidence to be successful in my career focusing on the manufacturing and development of gene therapies for rare genetic diseases."
Arnon Ashkenazi '20 Biomedical Engineering
"Faculty truly seem to care about their students’ goals and academic achievement. I learned many of my job’s daily functions in a Gannon classroom such as designing, improving and implementing various medical devices. My degree has helped me make a difference and improve countless patients’ lives, even just two years into my professional career."
Leyre Berganzos Fernandez Biomedical Engineering
"The highlight of my academic
career is the emphasis on
biomedical learning, which will
give me the opportunity to enter
“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.”
