Solve problems. Innovate. Advance the world of medicine and healthcare.


The Biomedical Engineering curriculum at Stevenson University prepares students to solve important human health-related scientific problems through the application of engineering principles, ideas, methods, and inventions. The program emphasizes critical and creative thinking in addition to technical skills and knowledge and provides students with opportunities to apply these skills and knowledge to the solution of real world problems. A strong foundation in basic sciences and math, including biology, chemistry, physics, and data analysis, coupled with specific biomedical engineering coursework provides students with a broad interdisciplinary background for careers in a wide variety of fields including biomechanics, biotechnology, rehabilitation, medicine and more.

Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering program will:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering principles to the description and analysis of living systems.
  • Design and conduct experiments, including the analysis and interpretation of data.
  • Design a system, component, or process that meets desired needs within relevant constraints such as economic, environmental, ethical, safety, sustainability and others.
  • Collaborate effectively to formulate, test and refine an engineering solution to a biomedical problem or issue.
  • Evaluate scientific issues and findings using primary research literature.
  • Communicate scientific and engineering findings or conclusions in written and oral formats appropriate to the audience.
  • Conduct oneself in a manner consistent with the ethical and professional standards of the discipline.
  • Apply academic preparation to professional experiences outside the classroom.
