¿Qué aprenderé?

Biomedical engineers have the unique ability to serve as a bridge between engineering and medicine. The rapid advancement of high technology into all medical specialties has increased the demand for engineers who have a depth of knowledge in both engineering and physiology. Biomedical engineers make significant contributions to society by improving patient care and ultimately improving the quality of life for others.

Western New England University provides Biomedical Engineering students with a solid engineering background and an in-depth understanding of human physiology, anatomy, and biology necessary to be a successful biomedical engineer. The curriculum is designed for maximum flexibility, allowing students to choose elective courses that are of most interest. In the junior and senior year, students choose four “sequence electives,” two technical electives, as well as a series of five general education courses that fulfill the University’s requirement for a perspective on ethics, history, aesthetics, integrated liberal and professional learning, cultural studies, and social and behavioral issues. Students are exposed to the major physiological systems during each of the final four semesters through laboratory work, courses, and through the capstone Senior Design Project.

Career Opportunities

The Biomedical Engineering program at Western New England University is designed to prepare students for either immediate employment or for admission to graduate or medical school. Demand for biomedical engineers is growing as more and more technology is finding its way into all branches of medicine. Since the field of biomedical engineering is so broad, many of our graduates choose to specialize their knowledge in graduate or professional school by pursuing an M.S., Ph.D, or M.D. degree. Our graduates are working in the medical instrumentation and device industry, pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, research facilities, and hospitals.
