About the Biomedical Engineering Major

Biomedical engineering integrates engineering principles and design concepts with medical and biological sciences to advance healthcare treatment. Biomedical engineers are integral in the development and innovation of equipment, devices, and computer systems and software in the healthcare field while closing the gap between engineering and medicine.

The University of Mount Union’s Biomedical Engineering major is designed to foster an innovative mindset while offering the crucial knowledge to successfully impact this rewarding and high-growth field. Our biomedical engineering faculty at Mount Union is an outstanding group with expertise in the fields that make up biomedical engineering such as:

  • Bioinstrumentation
  • Biomaterials
  • Biomechanics
  • Clinical Engineering
  • Rehabilitation engineering
  • Systems Physiology

The Department of Engineering’s four pillars of exceptional engineering education combined with a yearlong senior design capstone project that is driven by real-world applications from industry is a distinguishing factor that develops leaders in the field.

We will enroll our first class in Fall 2018. The biomedical engineering major is being added along with two other engineering programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering. They will be housed in the Department of Engineering along with the two successful ABET accredited programs in mechanical engineering and civil engineering.
