The College of Engineering - Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering (BME)

Rowan Engineering is pleased to offer the B.S. in Biomedical Engineering (BME), with the inaugural class starting in Fall 2014.

What is Biomedical Engineers?

Biomedical engineering is at the intersection of medicine and biology, with the focus on the improvement of heath care systems. Rowan's biomedical engineering program will educate its students to analyze and design innovative solutions, with the goal of improving the quality and effectiveness of patient care. Modeled after the proven hands-on, real world, project-based curriculum of Rowan’s existing engineering programs, the BME degree program will prepare students to contribute to health care solutions in an increasingly multidisciplinary environment.

What do Biomedical Engineers Do?

Bioengineering careers deal with things like stem cell research, tissue engineering, the creation of artificial organs and limbs, nanotechnology, surgeries performed by robots and the development of synthetic drugs for things like arthritis, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Program of Study

Our biomedical engineering program provides students with a firm grounding in the life sciences, along with a solid background in the traditional engineering disciplines. Graduates of our program will possess the skills necessary to develop and design health care systems, have the knowledge to pursue further studies in medical school, and be able to contribute as a practicing engineer in a myriad of other professions. The typical course sequence for our 4-year program can be found here.
