BME Bachelor's Degree
CSU's bachelor's program in Biomedical Engineering (BME) is the first BME bachelor's program in the state of Colorado. Our pathway approach allows students to pursue a full degree in Biomedical Engineering and also includes coursework in traditional engineering areas. This provides both breadth and depth of training that gives a competitive edge upon graduation. We invite you to take a look and see how it might fit for you.
Earning two degrees in a five-year period is a challenging and rewarding way to gain the breadth and depth to help make you a successful biomedical engineer.
At Colorado State University, students earn Bachelor of Science degrees in Biomedical Engineering and one of the following :
- Chemical & Biological Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
We strongly encourage and will help you get hands-on opportunities such as research laboratory opportunities in and out of the classroom; internships; synergistic senior design project that includes both degrees.

Here are guides that can give you a fuller picture of our program:
See what courses you would take for your pathway to a BME degree:
- BME-CBE (B.S. in Biomedical Engineering combined with B.S. in Chemical & Biological Engineering)
- BME-EE (B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and B.S. in Electrical Engineering)
- BME-EE with Lasers & Optics (BB.S. in Biomedical Engineering combined with B.S. in Electrical Engineering - concentration in Lasers & Optics)
- BME-MECH (B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering)
Technical Electives are required for each pathway:
Petition to substitute a class. Be sure to submit a clear, concise, compelling reason for your request.
Practicum/Independent Study Packet: Must be approved prior to semester for which you want credit. Allow 2 months for reveiw.
