What is Biomedical Engineering?

Biomedical Engineering blends traditional engineering techniques with biological sciences and medicine to improve the quality of human health and life. The discipline focuses both on understanding complex living systems - via experimental and analytical techniques - and on development of devices, methods and algorithms that advance medical and biological knowledge while improving the effectiveness and delivery of clinical medicine.

The UConn BME Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD., 21202-4012; telephone: (410) 347-7700.

BME Laboratories

The BME undergraduate program was developed with a virtual instrument approach for our nine required BME laboratories from its inception. Learn more about the laboratories.

Study Abroad in Biomedical Engineering

The UConn BME program has as one of its Educational Objectives the training of global leaders in biomedical engineering. Participating in study abroad is the first step toward achieving this goal. In combination with study abroad in biomedical engineering, students may want to consider a double major, with an additional degree in a foreign language. Learn more about this opportunity.

Dual Degree in BME and a Modern Language

The BME program offers a five-year dual degree program with the Department of Modern and Classical Languages in French, German, Italian and Spanish. Students with a strong background in a modern language can usually fulfill the dual degree program in less than five years. Supplemented with a study abroad experience, the dual degree program is an excellent preparation for work in the global economy.  Click here to see a description of the course of study.

5 Year BME BS + MS Academic Plan

The BME Program offers a five-year BS and MS degree academic plan to BME undergraduate students with a GPA > 3.0. Click here for the 5-year course of study.

Clinical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering Program is pleased to announce the availability of Clinical Engineering Internship opportunities at the University of Connecticut beginning in the fall 2010 semester.The Clinical Engineering Internship program is intended for M.S. students, and offers an in-depth, rigorous, clinical experience that matches the engineering expertise gained in the classroom. Learn more about Clinical Engineering at UConn.

IEEE EMBS Student Branch Chapter and BMES Student Chapter

The UConn BME students have an active Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society (EMBS) Student Branch Chapter and Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Student Chapter. In 2006, the UConn EMBS Student Branch Chapter received the Outstanding Performance Award. Learn more about these student societies at UConn.
