Biomedical engineering is the profession of solving medical problems using engineering skills. Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing areas of research and industry in the United States.
At the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, our vision of biomedical engineering is improving the quality of human life. Few things are more rewarding than using problem-solving skills learned in engineering to solve problems in medicine, and to see the resulting impact in people. Biomedical engineering is built upon multidisciplinary skills that integrate engineering, biology, and medicine. Some examples of biomedical engineering applications include biomaterials, biomechanics, biosensors, ergonomics, medical imaging, rehabilitation, robotics, systems biology, and tissue engineering
The college offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering.
