Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical Engineers study the human body from an engineering perspective and create high-tech solutions for improving human health. The Biomedical Engineer’s unique combination of engineering fundamentals and human physiology is highly sought after by today’s medical device manufacturers and medical research institutions. In fact, Forbes’ Magazine recently named Biomedical Engineering the #1 most valuable college major (May 2012). The CBU Biomedical Engineering program prepares graduates for the design and testing biomedical products, such as implantables, wearables, or medical equipment. The program also allows the student to use their engineering fundamentals to intimately explore the great complexities of the human body and admire the intricate work of God, our Creator and Savior.
Biomedical Engineering graduates find themselves with a variety of career options. They are well-suited for the design and development of implantables, such as artificial joints or stents, wearables, such as glucose monitors or artificial limbs, and health care equipment, such as a medical imaging systems or surgical consoles. Many select to join cutting-edge research programs where they use their knowledge of science and engineering to expand our understanding of human conditions and develop novel methods to treat disease and disabilities.
Note: Per ABET’s policy, ABET accreditation can be obtained about 16 months after the first graduates and would be retroactive to those first graduates.
