Our Approach

We have incorporated hands-on learning opportunities into our curriculum. Each semester, students are presented with engineering problems and are given the training and guidance needed to create highly technical solutions to these problems. Students are trained on the use of advanced bench top engineering equipment from network analyzers, digital oscilloscopes, and function generators so they can design, test and build medical devices.

Bioengineering undergraduate students presented at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research April 2017

Students graduate from our program able to successfully navigate medical school or as competent engineers able to develop medical devices.
