BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING 14 Biomedical engineers combine engineering, biology and medicine to improve human health. They design things like prostheses, lasers that perform corrective eye surgery, implantable defibrillators, and artificial organs and tissues. Choose from three majors: biocomputing to study computer engineering and life sciences; bioelectronics to study electric circuits and biomedical instrumentation design; and biomechanics to study materials and thermodynamics. In your senior year capstone course, you and your classmates will be members of a design team commissioned to solve real biomedical problems. You also can complete two degrees in five years through Marquette’s combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program or join the 15 percent of our graduates who enter medical school after graduation. Real-world experience Marquette biomedical engineers helped establish several physiology research labs at the Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, and faculty mentors guide students in contributing to research projects there. Learn about biomedical research and regulatory issues at the Food and Drug Administration through internships at our Washington, D.C.based Les Aspin Center for Government.
