Salary and Career Info
Biomedical Engineering BS
A biomedical engineering degree combines engineering with biology and medicine to create innovation solutions that improve human health.
Students solve engineering problems by drawing on core science and lab training, including chemistry, physics, cell and molecular biology, bio-compatibility, anatomy and physiology. They contribute to multidisciplinary teams of engineers and scientists focusing on engineering solutions for the human body. Students utilize math skills to formulate and solve biomedical problems and interpret results of clinical studies and translate them in terms of engineering design constraints.

What’s different about an RIT education? It’s the career experience you gain by completing cooperative education and internships with top companies in every single industry. You’ll earn more than a degree. You’ll gain real-world career experience that sets you apart. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries.
Co-ops and internships take your knowledge and turn it into know-how. Your engineering co-ops will provide hands-on experience that enables you to apply your engineering knowledge in professional settings while you make valuable connections between classwork and real-world applications.
The biomedical engineering degree requires students to complete four blocks (roughly 48 weeks) of cooperative education.
