Biomedical engineering is a science-based engineering discipline that integrates engineering and biomedical sciences in one curriculum. The MU biomedical engineering program is a broad-based curriculum that prepares students for careers in traditional engineering as well as medicine, veterinary medicine, law, health care, policy and academics through tracks in four specific areas:
- Biomedical Imaging & Instrumentation
Biomedical engineering graduates are hired by biotechnology, medical, and pharmaceutical companies, as well as by government agencies and major research laboratories. Many of our undergraduate students attend graduate, medical or law schools post-graduation. Graduates are well-prepared to take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam during their senior year, which is the first step toward obtaining a Professional Engineer license; many additionally take the MCAT, the LSAT and the GRE in preparation for their graduate or professional studies.
