Inside the Program

Students and faculty create smart skin biomed sensor

Student and faculty researchers at Wichita State are creating a smart skin biomedical sensor that could someday be used by NASA.

If the sensor does what they expect, it would be able to measure multiple physiological parameters that NASA is interested in, including blood flow, intercranial pressure, blood health, blood gas levels and muscle degeneration.

Curriculum

Biomedical engineering students gain a strong foundation in general education, math, science, general and biomedical engineering coursework. The program offers three concentrations: bio devices and instrumentation, bio energy and lifespan engineering.

Careers

Fueled in large part by our aging society, the demand for biomedical engineers is increasing. Many graduates with a bachelor of science degree go on to graduate studies, medical or professional schools. They work for pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, hospitals and rehabilitation centers, and biomedical and bioengineering research institutes.
