Why BME

The B.S. in Biomedical Engineering (BME) trains engineers to work at the interface between engineering and the biomedical sciences. The curriculum is structures into two phases: Foundational and Specialization.

The Foundational Phase establishes a core of math and science, builds a solid foundation in quantitative engineering methods and biomedical sciences, and exposes students to opportunities in biomedical engineering. In the Specialization Phase, students focus their studies in one of three areas:

  • Biosensing & Instrumentation
  • Cell, Tissue and Organ Biomechanics
  • Systems and Network Biology

Specializations involve technical electives that focus on the application of engineering methods to track-related biomedical problems.

The BME degree leverages strong ties between UVM's School of Engineering and its College of Medicine. This BME collaboration will provide students unique biomedical opportunities in a professional setting.
