Biomedical engineers apply knowledge of how the body works to design devices, ranging from imaging systems to prosthetics, to improve healthcare.
Discover: Medical Innovation
The Discover Medical Innovations camp allows for students to spend a week examining Biomedical Engineering, BioMolecular Engineering, and Nursing. Each day students work on hands on activities for a different academic program with expert faculty. Students will also spend a full day examining how the three fields interact with each other to provide a patient with innovative care. If you are interested in a career in the medical world but need to figure out where your interests best align, the Discover Medical Innovations camp is a perfect opportunity to find your fit.
BioMolecular engineering is the merger of life sciences and chemical engineering. A BioMolecular engineer thinks and designs at the molecular level using biomolecules like DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and lipids.
Since 1995, the MSOE School of Nursing (SON) has been educating students who have the caring attitude and skills that make excellent nurses. The MSOE curriculum integrates a strong technology base that makes you a better caregiver. The technology used in the classroom and laboratories, such as responsive manikins, also helps to prepare you for working with patients.
