Bioengineering is a multi-disciplinary Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) field which combines biology, medicine, and engineering. Students in this exciting and growing field of study will discover a diverse array of educational and professional opportunities. They will seek careers in industrial, healthcare, academia, government, and private laboratories. Graduates of our program will find that their professional careers are filled with great challenges and even greater rewards as they experience the profound differences their efforts can make in improving human lives.

The typical bioengineer will play a critical role in translating medical needs into engineering specifications. They will work in team environments with members that include scientists, engineers, clinicians, and life scientists.

For current and future bioengineering students exploring career options, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has designed a helpful website, a tool to “navigate the circuit”, and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) has designed a Careers Connections site. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the median salary of biomedical engineers is nearly $90,000, and job growth will continue through at least 2026.
