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 devices and instruments that improve the quality of life for medical patients and aid physicians in medical diagnosis and treatment of disease, such as total implantable hearts, pacemakers and defibrillators, imaging devices, prostheses, replacement parts, portable EKG machines, and heart-lung machines.

The biomedical engineering program at Stevens exposes you to a broad-based, multidisciplinary curriculum that not only trains you in the fundamentals of math, science and engineering, but also in biology, physiology and the interactions of engineering materials with biological surfaces.

In this program, you'll experience a strong design component that includes a capstone senior design project — a team effort to design, build and test a medical device. You'll also get extensive laboratory experience in cutting-edge research with faculty in areas like biorobotics, brain-machine interface, spinal implants, lung mechanics, emergency medicine (with Hoboken University Medical Center), and tissue engineering.

The Bachelor of Engineering program in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, https://www.abet.org.
