BS in Biomedical Engineering

Engineer solutions to biomedical issues

The human body is a complex machine, and, like all machines, sometimes needs a little engineering help. The Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering at Trine University equips you with the tools needed to develop these solutions.

The degree: Integration of engineering and biological sciences

The Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering integrates the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance health care. The biomedical engineering program prepares you for a successful career in industry and graduate school. You will be able to select one of three focus area concentrations: research, electrical or mechanical engineering.

Trine University's biomedical engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The experience: Use biomedical engineering tools to solve real problems

Building upon Trine University’s rich engineering heritage, the biomedical engineering program presents a “hands-on” approach to student learning. You will have access to state-of-the-art engineering laboratories as well as various labs in the Jannen School of Arts and Sciences.

  • Integrated exposure to an eight-camera Vicon Motion Capture Biomechanics Lab
  • Material property analysis utilizing an Instron Tensile Machine in the Biomaterials Lab
  • Static and dynamic assays as part of the Biomedical Engineering Laboratory Techniques course
  • Physiological measurements with biomedical instruments
  • Applied human-centered senior design projects
  • Scaffold development for cellular integration utilizing a 3D Tissue Printer
  • Potential to acquire minors in bioprocess engineering, robotics, chemistry, biology or mathematics

The result: Success in a career or graduate school

As a graduate with a Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering degree, you will be equipped with the skills to be successful in industry or graduate school.
