Department of Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic). The B.S. in Biomedical Engineering is designed as a valuable credential for individuals who wish to pursue a professional career in BME in private enterprises or the public sector. The B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, in addition to preparing students for professional careers in BME, will also prepare its graduates to pursue M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in BME or other engineering masters and doctoral programs in the nation. The program is designed to be 126 credits in length and, on a full-time basis, could be completed in four calendar years.

At the graduate level, UMass Lowell offers a Master’s degree and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology (BMEBT) through the University of Massachusetts system.

Purpose and Description of the Program

The objective of the proposed Biomedical Engineering program is to prepare students for prominent biomedical engineering applications including the development of bio-compatible prostheses, various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices ranging from clinical equipment to micro-implants, imaging equipment such as MRIs and EEGs, pharmaceutical drugs and therapeutic biologicals, as well as applications such as bio-manufacturing and manufacturing
