The reason I chose biomedical engineering is mostly because Florida Tech is really unique in offering an undergraduate level of it. It’s also really cutting-edge! One of the things I’m learning is tissue engineering, along with many other similar techniques. Currently, I am working with a professor and a cardiologist to begin the creation of our lab. It’s great to see how the major is coming forth as well as being in such a unique position to meet all of the new faculty members!

Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering

The exciting field of biomedical engineering involves developing devices and procedures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices.

Whether you want a career in medicine, public health or in the rapidly growing biotechnology industry, a biomedical engineering degree from Florida Tech gives you a strong background in biology and engineering with experience in biomedical instrumentation and biomechanics.

Gain Practical Experience

Our biomedical engineering program integrates biological sciences, engineering and applied technical training – perfect preparation for medical school and professional careers. Collaborative efforts between Florida Tech faculty and the local medical community offer unique research learning experiences for students working towards a biomedical engineering degree. In addition, the biomedical engineering learning experience is enriched through design courses, where students work as teams to solve biomedical engineering problems, and interactions with local practicing physicians through internships.

Other opportunities students seeking a biomedical engineering degree find at Florida Tech include:

  • A six- to seven-week clinical immersion experience for select undergraduate students.
  • A senior design project in collaboration with a team of your peers that involves interaction with local physicians, medical institutes and hospitals such as those for Veteran Affairs. Together, you'll conceptualize, design, construct and present a machine, gadget or structure that fulfills a real-world need. You'll also present your project to industry leaders and employers, and may participate in international events.
  • Learning in labs dedicated to experimentation and research in lasers, instrumentation, medical imaging, microscopy, neural imaging, physiology, biomaterials and biomechanics.

These activities give you practical experience, an expanded professional network and perhaps even a pre-graduation job offer.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, biomedical engineering degree majors build career experience through the ProTrack Co-op program and participation in academic organizations like Tau Beta Pi (the engineering honor society), the Premed Club (campus chapter of the American Medical Student Association), athletics and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.

Get Recruited Upon Graduation

Employers that have recruited graduates with a biomedical engineering degree from Florida Tech for internships and careers include NASA (Kennedy Space Center), National Institutes of Health, the Midwest Research Institute and the Centers for Disease Control.

Earn an Advanced Degree

After receiving their biomedical engineering degree, many of our students go on to pursue advanced degrees. Medical schools that have recently admitted Florida Tech graduates include Boston University, Florida State University and the University of Maryland.
