Biomedical Engineering

  • Design the Future of Medical Devices and Delivery with a Biomedical Engineering Degree from Gannon University

    Forge your education with your own hands by designing projects in cutting-edge laboratories beginning in your first semester. Learn from internationally renowned faculty in small classes as you explore research experiences. By the time you graduate, you will have opportunities to work alongside medical professionals on real-world health care problems, conduct research, attend conferences, publish scientific papers and participate in cross-disciplinary project design and creation.

    • Engage in undergraduate research opportunities in a variety of industries.

    • ABET: Engineering Accreditation ComissionAccredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

    • Pursue engineering design projects that bring your ideas from concept to reality.

    Learn to Lead the Way in Biomedical Engineering

    • Analyze and solve problems in biology and medicine to enhance health care.
    • Apply engineering and technology to increase the quality of life for people with physical disabilities.
    • Gain a competitive edge and hands-on experience while learning technical skills such as creating 3D-printed materials or coding skills to analyze human body movement to complete various projects and research.
    • Tailor your academic learning through track options in biomechanics and bioelectrics.

    Experience an Exceptional Learning Environment

    The Biomedical Engineering Laboratory in the Center for Advanced Engineering includes:

    • The only undergraduate virtual reality robotic system used to study how the brain controls movements.
    • A research-grade motion-capture system to record physical activities such as running.
    • A Lap-Mentor Surgery simulator to practice performing virtual surgeries.
    • 3D printers to create composite and ceramic materials for bio-fabrication.
