Biomedical engineering (BME) combines engineering principles and methodology with physical, chemical and mathematical sciences to solve problems in biology, medicine, behavior and health.
Biomedical engineers are employed by pharmaceutical industries, government agencies, biomedical product companies, universities, medical center labs and emerging high-tech industries. Due to their multidisciplinary backgrounds, biomedical engineers have diverse research interests, often acting as liaisons between technological and clinical communities.
Biomedical Engineering offers degrees of Master of Science and Doctorate of Philosophy with more than 80 faculty mentors to choose from within colleges such as:
Students also may pursue an MD/PhD degree administered jointly through the College of Medicine and the Graduate School. The combined BS/MS program is an option for high-achieving Ohio State undergraduates.
A mature graduate program, Biomedical engineering has granted more than 350 graduate degrees since 1971.
