Biocomputing, BBE

The Biocomputing Major integrates a life sciences education with training in computer engineering, including a solid foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering methods. In their senior year, students participate in a comprehensive biocomputer engineering design laboratory experience that incorporates engineers from industry and emphasizes computer applications for medical device design and biomedical informatics. In addition, a senior capstone design course places students in a multidisciplinary team working with industry to solve a computationally focused design problem.

This major is for students interested in Biomedical Imaging software applications, Computational Modeling including human modeling and simulation, or Metabolic or Cellular Engineering. The major also incorporates elements of Systems Biology and Systems Engineering.
