Wichita State University's ABET-accredited Biomedical Engineering program integrates physical, chemical and mathematical sciences with engineering principles for the study of biology, medicine, behavior or health. Through laboratory experiences
that bridge multiple disciplines, we develop materials, processes, implants, devices
and informatics approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease,
for patient rehabilitation and for improving health.
Fueled by our aging society, the demand for bioengineers is increasing, a trend expected to continue for years. Graduates of the program go on to graduate
studies, medical school or work in industry. Employers of biomedical engineers include
pharmaceutical firms, medical equipment manufacturers, hospitals and rehabilitation
centers and biomedical research institutes.
