This dual major combines studies in electrical engineering with additional specialist study and project work in bioengineering.
Biomedical engineering bridges the gap between technology, medicine and biology. It integrates physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational sciences and engineering principles with the ultimate goal of improving healthcare through advanced technology.
From your first year, this major builds foundational knowledge in engineering, mathematics, biology and physics. This is followed by more advanced coursework and laboratory training, combining engineering analysis and design techniques with the biology and physiology of cells and organisms.
Employment opportunities include hospitals, biotechnology companies, medical equipment manufacturers, research institutes, and government health departments.
