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 College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences and Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine. This BME collaboration will provide students unique biomedical opportunities in a professional setting.
