CALLING ALL BIONIC MEN AND WOMEN
Interested in the medical field, but not so much in cutting people open? This could be the course for you!
An undergraduate course of study in Biomedical Engineering is likened to a cross between engineering and biological science with varying degrees of proportionality between the two. Courses of study in Biomedical Engineering are extremely diverse as the field itself is relatively new and developing. Focus could be in a particular area, such as biomechanics; bioinstrumentation; cell, tissue and biomolecular engineering; or medical optics. In order to enroll in a biomedical engineering technology Bachelor’s Degree program, you may have to fulfill some requirements beyond the typical high school diploma or GED requirement. Some schools require applicants to have completed a specific number of courses in mathematics and sciences, including chemistry and biology. Certain schools may also require applicants to be in the upper portion of their graduating high school class. As a biomedical engineering technology student, you would spend time in classrooms and laboratories as well as participate in co-ops and internships at healthcare facilities. You might be required to complete a senior project. Some programs offer online courses.
