The Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering degree at the University of Mount Union is designed to foster an innovative mindset while offering the crucial knowledge to successfully impact this rewarding and high-growth field. This interdisciplinary program works in collaboration with the successful health sciences programs at Mount Union to provide students with unique hands-on experiences.
Courses in Biomedical Engineering
The biomedical engineering program requires 128-credit hours of coursework, which also fulfills the University’s requirements for its general education program, the Integrative Core. Mount Union’s biomedical engineering major provides an experience that stems from its “Four Pillars of Exceptional Engineering Education.”
The study of materials (synthetic and natural) that are used in contact with biological systems. Essential introductory knowledge about biomaterials selection, design, limiatations imposed by the technology, and host environment will be presented.
This course involves the analysis and design of musculoskeletal systems. Basic principles of mechanics, stress, strain, tensor analysis, and elastic solids will be applied to analyze structure and material properties of biological tissue such as skin, tendon, ligament, bone, and cartilage.
