BME combined with Chemical & Biological Engineering (CBE)


Colorado State University Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering (BME) combined with a chemical and biological engineering (CBE) degree, typically draws students interested in using biology and chemistry in engineering.

Our BME+CBE pathway has an emphasis on process engineering and also prepares students in diagnosing and/or treating diseases (e.g. cancer or tuberculosis), using medical devices that incorporate biology or chemistry (e.g. blood oxygenators or biocompatible materials in advanced wound-healing techniques), or working with advanced BME technologies such as artificial organs including skin.
