Description of Major
This major educates students about how to improve healthcare using the tools and principles learned from
engineering. The biomedical engineering program has two tracks: biomechanics and medical device innovation.
Biomechanics emphasizes the study of forces, motions, shape changes (deformations) and failure of biological
tissues and organ systems. Medical device innovation emphasizes the design and development of new medical
products and surgical instruments.
