Biomedical Engineering B.S.BME.

The B.S. in Biomedical Engineering trains engineers to work at the interface between engineering and the biomedical sciences. The curriculum is structured into three phases: Foundational, Core, and Specialization.

In the Foundational Phase, students take courses in math and science to build a solid foundation in quantitative engineering methods and biomedical science, and to expose them to the opportunities in biomedical engineering. In the BME Skills Phase, students develop the breadth of engineering skills needed to address the multidisciplinary nature of biomedical engineering. This phase is complemented by a multi-semester design sequence. In the final three semesters, Specialization Phase, students pursue electives germane to their interests and have their Capstone Design Experience.

The B.S. in Biomedical Engineering leverages strong ties between UVM's College of Engineering & Mathematical Sciences and its Larner College of Medicine. This collaboration provides students unique biomedical opportunities in a professional setting.
