Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering (B.S. BMEN)

The Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering incorporates coursework traditionally affiliated with the medical field (biology, physiology, organic chemistry) and business (economics, statistics, entrepreneurship) while maintaining the rigors of a traditional engineering program (instrumentation, mechanics, materials). During senior year, students participate in Capstone design projects. In an effort to gain work experience, students may elect to participate in an internship or co-op program.


The Biomedical Engineering faculty participate in two related graduate programs.

Masters and Doctoral degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology (BMEBT) are offered jointly by the University of Massachusetts campuses at Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell, and Worcester. 

Learn more about the following BMEBT programs.

  • Bachelor's to Master's
  • Master's
  • Professional Science Master's
  • Doctoral
The faculty in the Biomedical Engineering Department also participate in graduate programs in two areas related to occupational safety and health: Occupational Safety and Ergonomics (OS/E), and Occupational Epidemiology (OccEpi).
In each area, a few Work Environment traineeships per year are supported by a grant from the U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Trainees receive tuition, fees, and a stipend while they are enrolled as full-time students.
Please consult any applicable licensure requirements for this program.
