Biomedical Engineering Major


The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers B.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering. The B.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering incorporates coursework traditionally affiliated with the medical field (biology, anatomy and physiology, biomechanics) and business (economics, statistics, entrepreneurship) while maintaining the rigors of a traditional engineering program (statics, dynamics, circuit design, etc.). During senior year, students participate in two Capstone research projects. In an effort to gain work experience, students may elect to participate in an internship or co-op program. The Biomedical Engineering curriculum consists of 123 credits of undergraduate courses.

UMass Lowell students can earn their B.S.E. and M.S. degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology, respectively, in as little as five years when they enroll in the Bachelor's to Master's degree option. For eligible students who apply, the application fee is waived and GRE scores are not required. Depending on the number of course credits taken as an undergraduate, up to 12 credits of graduate courses (level 5000 and higher) may be used toward the 31-credit M.S. in Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology. This non-thesis program prepares students for a professional career and may be completed on either a full-time or part-time basis. For more information, see the graduate catalog.
