Alex and Rhea discuss their favorite parts of being BME studentsMeet More Students
Biomedical engineering gives students the ability to apply the technical engineering topics to the extremely dynamic field of medicine. The best part of studying BME is knowing that no matter what profession I choose I know I will have a positive impact on the lives of others.
The best part of BME is how broad it is as a field. You can go so many directions, from medical devices and prosthetics to bioinformatics to chemical manufacturing equipment to nanomedicine. BME is truly all encompassing, and for a world of science where things are changing every minute, it is truly my belief that BME’s are some of the few that can keep up, because we have expertise in literally everything.
