School of Engineering
Where Engineering Meets Medicine
Biomedical engineering combines the study of basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering with the life sciences to understand, analyze, and design physiological and medical systems. Some of the most well-known examples of biomedical engineering developments are the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer assisted tomography (CAT), ultrasonic imaging scanners, kidney dialysis units, pacemakers, heart valves, and vascular grafts.
