Putting the Problem-Solving Capabilities of Engineering to Work for the Medical Sciences
Ranging far beyond traditional engineering programs, Biomedical Engineering effectively integrates physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational sciences–along with engineering principles–and applies them to the study of biology, medicine, behavior, and health.
Through a hands-on, project-oriented curriculum that emphasizes research, WPI’s Biomedical Engineering (BME) Department prepares students to apply their knowledge and skills to confidently take on real-world challenges–and make a profound difference.
Graduates go on to pursue rewarding careers in the healthcare industry or professional programs in biomedical research or medicine.
It’s important to note that because there are no required courses, the path to a BS in Biomedical Engineering will vary greatly among individual students. Working within the boundaries of the major’s Distribution Requirements (and WPI’s general degree requirements), students must tailor their programs to fit their specific academic needs.
