B.S. in Biomedical Engineering with Electrical Engineering, Lasers and Optical Engineering
The Bachelor of Science Biomedical Engineering with Electrical Engineering – Lasers and Optical Engineering program from Colorado State University typically draws students interested in using biology and chemistry in engineering.
|Full-time Duration:||5 years|
|Starting in:||January, August|
|Tuition Fee:||$31,712 per year|
|Location:||Fort Collins, CO, United States|
Our BME+CBE pathway has an emphasis on process engineering and also prepares students in diagnosing and/or treating diseases (e.g. cancer or tuberculosis), using medical devices that incorporate biology or chemistry (e.g. blood oxygenators or biocompatible materials in advanced wound-healing techniques), or working with advanced BME technologies such as artificial organs including skin.
The Biomedical Engineering with Electrical Engineering – Lasers and Optical Engineering program from Colorado State University is designed to be very transdisciplinary and to integrate the traditional engineering major with biomedical engineering. There are many hands-on applications in the classes and labs. Your senior design project will bring all this together in a team-project environment that will give you more hands-on and integrated experiences with the BME bachelor’s degree.
At the master’s level, students traditionally pursue research based on the adviser’s projects, which also provides depth. This option leaves it up to you to integrate your courses of study. Either way you go, you would be well-prepared to apply for a PhD program.
What is biomedical engineering?
Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering and biology principles to improve human health. Here at Colorado State University, the School of Biomedical Engineering combines strengths in veterinary medicine, engineering, and the sciences to provide an interdisciplinary focus on improving health, fighting disease, and aiding persons with disabilities. Our research areas and interests focus on three areas: medical devices and therapeutics, imaging and diagnostics, and regenerative and rehabilitative medicine.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
