Are you looking to expand your skills and knowledge designing medical tools and devices that help save lives?
Then consider the Bioengineering Applications Concentration as part of your Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree program.
With this specialty, you will receive an introduction to the field of medical engineering without jeopardizing the fundamentals of the mechanical engineering discipline. Courses include bioengineering applications and special focuses.
Historically, engineers have made great contributions to the advancement of medical diagnostics and therapeutic sciences. The demand for biomedical engineers is projected to be slightly higher than average for this decade, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, which measured the median salary at just over $91,000.
Professionals in bioengineering work in fields such as orthopedics, medical device manufacturing and health services.
- You want specific skills and experience designing and refining next-gen medical devices.
- As a Mechanical Engineering student you be in labs like e-Design and e-Manufacturing Studio, Energy Systems Lab, Crash Safety Center, Advanced Engine Research Lab, DENSO International Dynamic Systems Design Studio and The Center for Fuel Cell Systems and Powertrain.
- Faculty are researching Energy Systems, Orthopaedic Biomechanics, Computational Biomechanics, Automobile body structure design and crash analysis, Tire Mechanics, Noise, Vibration, Water collection and filtration technologies in the developing world, and Mechatronics.
