The undergraduate biomedical engineering program at Binghamton University develops leaders and successful contributors within the broad field of biomedical engineering, preparing students for careers in:
- Healthcare, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, artificial organs, prosthetics, diagnostics, medical instrumentation and medical imaging
- Medical centers and research institutes
- Rehabilitation engineering
- Environmental engineering
- Food engineering
- Oversight organizations such as the FDA and OSHA
In biomedical engineering, science, math and engineering principles converge in unique ways, and new discoveries result.
Graduates of our program will have gained an understanding of biology and the ability to apply advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), science and engineering to solving problems at the interface of engineering and biology; and the ability to make measurements on and interpret data from living systems, addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems.
In addition, biomedical engineering studies at the undergraduate level are an excellent foundation from which to pursue graduate studies in biomedical engineering, the sciences or other disciplines such as business, law or medicine.
