Become an engineer with purpose

Build upper-limb exoskeletons and body-powered prosthetics. Design electronic wearables. Develop computer-based tracking systems for clinical practices. At Marymount University, our Bachelor of Science program in Biomedical Engineering combines engineering with medicine to improve health care around the globe.

Learn from faculty with diverse expertise

Our Biomedical Engineering faculty are expert educators and include leaders in research who design 3D-printable prosthetic limbs and assistive devices built for low-resource regions of the world.

Top technologies for achieving goals

In small classes, you’ll work in digital fabrication, electronics, and virtual reality testing labs. Students create custom electronic wearables, body-powered prosthetics, and more. All the while, they:

  • Gain foundational knowledge in physical, health, and/or life sciences.
  • Learn innovative tech solutions that address barriers that limit participation in society.
  • Contribute to valuable research towards further graduate study.
  • Extend learned skills to professional practice in industry, research, and government.

Capstone projects with successful outcomes 

Your capstone projects will demonstrate the engineering design process — from ideation to development and testing. Successful outcomes will enable you to:

  • Solve complex problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • Apply engineering design to solutions in public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations.
  • Function effectively on a team that provides leadership, creates a collaborative and inclusive environment, establishes goals, plans tasks, and meets objectives.
  • Experiment, analyze, and interpret data.
