Description of the major
The Biomedical Engineering curriculum emphasizes the continuous integration of classical and modern engineering principles with the life sciences and health care. Biomedical Engineers apply these skills to innovation in the health care industry, basic biological sciences, and the underpinning of medical practice.
Consistent with the mission of Penn State University and the College of Engineering, the Penn State Bachelor of Science program in Biomedical Engineering aims to create world-class engineers who will, after graduation, contribute to social and economic development through the application of engineering to the solution of problems in medicine and biology.
