Biomedical engineers improve health, fight disease, and aid persons with disabilities.

Are you interested in designing medical instruments, devices, software to run medical equipment, or computer simulations to test new drug therapies?

Do you have a creative mind along with strong analytical, communication, math, and problem-solving skills?

Can you envision yourself working in manufacturing, universities, hospitals, or research facilities?

At CSU, graduates of the biomedical engineering (BME) program receive two degrees: one B.S. in biomedical engineering and the other B.S. in one of the three traditional engineering areas: chemical and biological engineering, electrical engineering or mechanical engineering.

“Industry doesn’t want to hire for biomedical engineering alone. The depth of another major makes candidates more desirable.”
