Make a lasting impact in healthcare
Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field that applies principles of engineering, biology, and medicine to design and develop innovative solutions for healthcare and medical-related challenges. The primary focus of biomedical engineering is to improve human health and well-being by integrating engineering concepts with medical and biological sciences.
CSU’s School of Biomedical Engineering requires every student in the program to pursue a dual degree; a Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering (BME) and a Bachelors of Science in another engineering-related field. When the BME program was created, founders decided that a dual degree was necessary to ensure that all graduates have a firm grasp on engineering concepts. In that way, the CSU BME program is one of the most focused biomedical engineering programs in the country.
The biomedical engineering field has been experiencing positive job growth over the years due to advancements in medical technology, an aging population, and increasing health concerns.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, “Employment of bioengineers and biomedical engineers is projected to grow 10 percent from 2021 to 2031, faster than the average for all occupations. About 1,200 openings for bioengineers and biomedical engineers are projected each year, on average, over the decade.”
