Biomedical Engineering Bachelor’s Program Curriculum Overview

Biomedical engineers must possess a thorough understanding of biology and human physiology. As such, the Stevens BME program includes courses in bio-transport phenomena, biomaterials, and biomechanics, as well as electronics, digital signals processing, medical imaging, and mathematical modeling of physiological processes. Our laboratories include hands-on experience in taking and analyzing data at all levels of biology and physiology.

The biomedical engineering bachelor's degree at Stevens includes the general engineering courses taken by other engineering disciplines, including eight semesters of design. The last three semesters of design are program-specific, with the last two semesters dedicated to a “Capstone Design” project — a team effort to design, build and test a medical device. A typical BME senior design has two or more faculty advisors, including a Stevens faculty member and a physician from one of our collaborating medical facilities.

By the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Identify biomedical engineering challenges and lead solution concepts.
  • Serve as leaders in the development of biomedical devices, implants, tissues and systems.
  • Apply robust skills like problem solving, teamwork, ethics, management, communication, and awareness of professional and social issues to different real-world scenarios.
