Graduate program: Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering combines the mathematical skills, physical science knowledge, and analytical ability of the engineer with the life scientist's knowledge and understanding of biology. Biomedical engineers apply engineering principles to solve medical and biological problems.

The Biomedical Engineering Program at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is an interdisciplinary graduate program offered through the department of Applied Biology and Biomedical Engineering, which offers the Bachelor of Science and the Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. Faculty members from Applied Biology & Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, and Optical Engineering are associated with the Biomedical Engineering (BE) program.

The program is intended primarily for degree candidates with a B.S. degree in any engineering discipline. Applications from students with different undergraduate majors are considered for admission on a case-by-case basis with the understanding that substantial additional undergraduate coursework may be required.
