Biomechanical engineers combine medical and biological sciences with engineering principles to design and develop healthcare equipment, devices, computer systems, and software. Employment is projected to grow 23% during the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Our Biomechanics concentration will give you a competitive advantage in the biomedical industry. Available to both undergraduate and graduate engineering students, this five-course concentration covers topics in tissue engineering, the strength and structural behavior of biocompatible materials, and the application of solid and fluid mechanics to biological systems in health and disease.
The concentration prepares graduates for careers in research, design, and manufacturing in the areas of prosthetics, artificial organs, and rehabilitation devices.
Students accepted into the concentration will choose five courses:
In addition, students are expected to pick a graduate design project within the biomechanics field. This hands-on program creates an engineer with critical, industry-specific tools.
To matriculate in the biomechanical concentration, you must earn an overall average GPA of 3.0 with no more than two grades lower than a 3.0 in any of the concentration courses. Incoming freshman, transfers and current students may enroll at any time.
