What will I learn?

Program Description

Biomedical engineers combine engineering principles with medical and biological sciences, with the goal of designing and creating equipment, devices, computer systems, and software to be used in healthcare. At the University of Utah, the Department of Bioengineering’s mission is to advance human understanding, health, and the quality of life through research and education in this field. The department is internationally recognized for its research, discovery, and invention in the area of biomedical engineering, with research strengths in biomaterials, biomedical devices, neural engineering, and cardiovascular engineering; the Bioengineering program is additionally accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. It prepares its graduates for success and leadership in industry, as well as future study in medicine, science, and engineering. In addition to education in biology concepts, bioengineering students will receive training through the College of Engineering to deliver biobased solutions to traditional engineering problems. Regardless of your specific interest area, bioengineering is an exciting field that will allow you to combine your passions for biology and engineering while helping to improve people’s lives.

Career Opportunities

Biomedical engineers can find work in a number of fields. Consider careers in bioinstrumentation (using electronics to develop medical devices), biomaterials (using materials to develop medical devices), biomechanics (using mechanics to solve medical problems), rehabilitation engineering (creating devices to assist with mental and physical rehabilitation), or systems physiology (how an organism’s internal systems function and respond to changes). Put your undergraduate research experience to work by joining a research facility or lab, or continue your education at the graduate level to become a professor, physician, or pharmacist.
