Biomedical Engineers are a special breed.
Enjoy math, physics & chemistry? Interested in biology and medicine? Consider a career in biomedical engineering.
This is where some of the toughest problems in medicine get solved.
Biomedical engineers integrate the basic principles of biology with the design and optimization tools of engineering in an arena where the stakes are high and the results can be life-changing. The field brings physicians and engineers together to save lives and improve healthcare.
“The power of BME is you’re able to have conversations with clinicians, understand their problems and meet their needs.” BME student Ryan Thomas
Built for the future
The Michigan BME undergraduate degree program provides a strong foundation in the life sciences and engineering, preparing students to work in the biomedical industry or transition into Medical school or graduate studies in BME through the Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Studies (SUGS) program.
The program’s three undergraduate concentrations are linked to the six graduate concentrations:
- Biochemical biomaterials and biotechnology
- Bioelectrics bioelectrics and biomedical imaging
- Biomechanics biomechanics and medical device development
