Biomedical engineers design, manufacture and ensure safe operation of prostheses, various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices such as clinical equipment or micro-implants, imaging equipment such as MRIs and EEGs, equipment for regenerative tissue growth, and equipment for pharmaceutical drug delivery. Biomedical engineers find careers in hospitals or other clinical settings, government regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, and medical research institutions.
Biomedical engineering uses many fields of engineering: electrical engineering for signal processing and instrumentation, computer engineering for control of systems, mechanical for structural strength design, and chemical engineering for design of fluid flows and design of materials. Geneva's biomedical engineering program can be used to explore any of these areas.
In the past four years, on average, 90% of Geneva students are working or in grad school within six months after graduation.
