Biomedical Engineering Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Areas of Study A-Z

Biomedical engineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field in which engineering principles are integrated with the study of biology. At Widener, faculty members are pursuing research in a wide range of topics within biomedical engineering, such as cardiovascular mechanics, kidney dialysis, tissue engineering, and biomechanics.

Students enrolling in the biomedical engineering minor can expect to gain:

  • An understanding of basic physiology and the application of engineering principles to biomedical problems.
  • Practical application of their engineering skills to a bioengineering problem through the senior project.
  • An appropriate background to enter the workforce as a traditional engineer (e.g., mechanical or electrical engineer) in a biomedical engineering setting or to excel in a bioengineering or biomedical engineering graduate program.

Interested students should contact the biomedical engineering department chair early in their sophomore year.
