Medical devices, biosensors, and bio-nanotechnology are just some of the exciting areas of biomedical engineering science and technology at Clarkson University. Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles to the human body — the ultimate machine. Whether it is applying electrical engineering to study the electrical properties of the heart or using mechanical engineering to study human balance, biomedical engineering is a growing field of engineering. Students pursue majors in the traditional fields, with an emphasis in courses related to biology and biomedical engineering.
At Clarkson, you can choose from the minor in biomedical engineering or the minor in biomedical science and technology. Students from both minors participate in shared core courses in biology, biomedical engineering and health-related courses along with a multidisciplinary capstone design course.
