We take on complex problems pertaining to healthcare and the human body and we SOLVE them…

Biomedical Engineers are first and foremost engineers. Biomedical engineering is the branch of engineering that uniquely leverages the vast knowledge base of biology and medicine to solve problems focused on healthcare and the human body. Biomedical engineers may design instruments, devices, and software; bring together knowledge from many technical sources to develop new procedures; or conduct research needed to solve clinical problems. They often serve a coordinating function, using their background in both engineering and medicine.

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Biomedical Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology strives to produce graduates who will:

  • Draw upon the fundamental knowledge, skills and tools of biomedical engineering to develop system-based engineering solutions that satisfy constraints imposed by a global society.
  • Enhance their skills through formal education and training, independent inquiry, and professional development.
  • Work well both independently and collaboratively, as well as demonstrate strong leadership skills, accountability, initiative and ethical and social responsibility.
  • Be able to successfully pursue graduate degrees at the Master’s and/or Ph.D. level.

The BME curriculum strives to achieve these objectives by:

  • Integrating cooperative education into the program for all students.
  • Providing a strong foundation in mathematics and science with a balance between liberal studies and technical courses.
  • Incorporating a strong laboratory component in the program with outstanding laboratory facilities.
  • Having a diverse faculty committed to engineering education.
