Bioengineering within ECE involves the application of electrical engineering toward the discipline of solving society’s great health and wellness problems, whether through electronics, software, data processing or engineering systems.
ECE has opened up curriculum opportunities, such as subareas within biomedical imaging and image processing, bioelectronics, neuroengineering, bioinformatics and bio-inspired dynamic systems.
Students interested in this area of study have a broad range of options for specialization. Bioengineering includes elements of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, materials, chemistry and biology.
The ECE Bioengineering curriculum allows students to gain and extend specialized ECE knowledge and skills toward interfacing with biological systems.
Beyond graduation, students are prepared for careers on the management, regulation, production or research and development of medical diagnostics and treatments, medical devices and instrumentation, wearable electronics, drug development, etc. within industry, academia or government sectors.
