The College of Engineering has seven academic departments:
Biomedical Engineers link biology, medicine, and engineering to improve human health. Biomedical engineers may work closely with medical doctors to design and evaluate prosthetic devices (e.g. heart valves, spinal and hip implants); work with computer analysis of medical images; work with new materials for implants and tissue-engineered implants; and use computers to analyze genetic structures and functions. This major is commonly used as a route to medical school. The Department of Biomedical Engineering fosters interdisciplinary activities across departments and colleges and maintains strong ties with the Carver College of Medicine.
