Bachelor of Science in BIOE
The Bioengineering undergraduate curriculum includes the integration of principles of biology and engineering coursework, such as biomechanics, modeling of human physiology, bioinstrumentation, and cell and tissue engineering. The curriculum is project-based and has a strong emphasis on systems- thinking as an approach to large-scale bioengineering problems.
During the first and second years, students take fundamental courses introducing them to bioengineering as a field and introducing clinically relevant projects as learning experiences. The program also features hands-on laboratory courses for real-world experience throughout the curriculum. The final two years allow students to focus on a particular track of bioengineering for further study (see "Track Electives") . A year-long senior capstone design course provides experience in applying engineering fundamentals to biological problems submitted by faculty, clinicians and industrial firms.
