BME combined with Electrical Engineering (EE)


Colorado State University bachelor’s of science degree in Biomedical Engineering (BME) combined with an Electrical Engineering (EE) degree provides a strong background in applied physics, signal and image processing, and instrumentation controls to design and create equipment, devices, computer systems, and software used in healthcare to make improvements for individuals and society.

BME+EE majors may work in a broad range of medical devices and equipment applications such as biomedical imaging, patient monitoring, and therapeutic processes (e.g. robotics that operate surgical equipment, devices that open and cauterize wounds, x-rays, etc.).


Biomedical Engineering (BME) combined with Electrical Engineering (EE) and a concentration in Lasers & Optics (L&O) further refines electrical engineering principles with additional physics, optics and lasers courses, resulting in a specialty that works in areas such as optics, biosensors, or ultra-fast lasers that help image and/or treat biological systems (e.g. radiation therapy, electro-chemical microfluidics).

The BME+EE pathway at CSU provides students with two bachelor's degrees within 5 years.
