B.S. in Biomedical Engineering
Prepare to create new medical devices, promote cutting-edge biotechnologies, and examine methods supporting a healthy life.
The University of Mississippi Biomedical Engineering program prepares students for the interdisciplinary world of biomedicine and technology. Students choose a track in Biomolecular Engineering, Biomedical Systems Engineering, or Bioinformatics.
The Biomedical Engineering program allows student to partner with the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Students also work with the University of Mississippi's world-class School of Pharmacy and Centers for Physical Acoustics and Natural Products to help create a dynamic educational experience.
Graduates of the program can enter careers in medical device design, biotech, pharmaceutical research and sales, and telemedicine. Biomedical engineering provides the skills and knowledge needed to pursue a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.).
Biomedical Engineering students can capitalize on internship experiences, as well as participate in undergraduate research projects.
B.S. in Biomedical Engineering Faculty
Biomedical Engineering draws its strength inside and outside the classroom from a dynamic faculty, whose diverse interests and experiences serve our students and surrounding communities.
