Learn to apply design and analysis techniques as you engineer solutions to problems at the interface between physical and biological systems in the biomedical engineering bachelor’s program.

Biomedical engineers design medical devices and instruments that improve patient quality of life and help doctors diagnose and treat diseases, like artificial hearts, pacemakers and defibrillators, imaging devices, prosthetic limbs, and more.

In the biomedical engineering program at Stevens, you’ll learn the fundamentals of math, science, engineering, biology, physiology and the interactions of engineering materials with biological surfaces.

Our program’s design-based curriculum includes a capstone senior design project where you’ll work with a team to design, build and test a real medical device. You'll also get extensive laboratory experience working alongside faculty on cutting-edge biomedical engineering research in areas like biorobotics, brain-machine interface, spinal implants, lung mechanics, emergency medicine (with Hoboken University Medical Center), and tissue engineering.
