Biomedical Engineering is an innovative Bachelor of Science degree program developed and delivered in collaboration with the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Computing & Informatics. It prepares students to conceive, design, and develop devices and systems that improve human health and quality of life. Biomedical engineering is the convergence of life sciences with engineering. From child car seats and football helmets to drug-delivery systems, minimally invasive surgery, and noninvasive imaging technology, the work of the biomedical engineer makes a difference in everyone’s life. The concentration in biomechanics and human performance engineering provides students with the background and skills needed to create work and living environments which improve human health and enhance performance. The biomechanics concentration applies engineering principles to study the interactions between humans and various machine systems in both working and living environments. Courses in this area of specialization cover such topics as the mechanics of materials, chronobiology, biomechanics, and human factors and cognitive engineering. Upon graduation, students will be able to: Model the effects of external forces on the human body and its tissues; Design implanted prosthetic devices through an understanding of the interaction between biological tissues and engineering material; Understand neural control of posture and locomotion; Apply system approaches to the interaction of humans with their environment in order to optimize performance; Design devices to aid people with disabilities by capitalizing on their engineering skills and human performance criteria.
