Learn how to apply engineering design and analysis techniques to problems at the interface between physical and biological systems and engineer solutions to help people live better lives in the biomedical engineering bachelor’s program at Stevens.
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 students to a broad-based, multidisciplinary curriculum that not only trains them in the fundamentals of math, science and engineering, but also in biology, physiology and the interactions of engineering materials with biological surfaces.
The program has a very strong design component including a capstone senior design project — a team effort to design, build and test a medical device — and extensive laboratory experience in cutting-edge research with faculty in areas like biorobotics, brain-machine interface, spinal implants, lung mechanics, emergency medicine (with HUMC) and tissue engineering.
