Combine the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance healthcare treatment
Biomedical engineers do a lot of different things that fall under the umbrella of biomedicine – everything from creating new medical devices to developing next-generation pharmaceuticals.
With a degree in biomedical engineering, you can pursue a job in the biomedical industry or graduate studies in the field. Also, you’ll be well-placed to seek a professional career in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy or patent law.
What you’ll find at Ole Miss
You can choose one of three academic tracks in our biomedical engineering program:
- Biomolecular engineering – brings together the study of molecular biology, biophysics and chemical engineering to modify or create new molecules. This can lead you to a job working on innovative drugs and medical processes, as well as new foods and fuels.
- Biomedical systems – provides you with an understanding of medical instrumentation, devices and biomechanics. You’ll also learn about signal analysis, using technology and other tools to better understand a person’s health.
- Bioinformatics – applies big data analytics to genome sequencing, medical imaging and large data management. This degree can start you down the path for a career in computational medical research, software development or database management.
- Pre-med – combines courses in biology and chemistry with the rigor of an engineering curricula. This sets you up for success in medical school and future medical endeavors.
