Biomechanics, BBE

The Biomechanics Major integrates life sciences education with training in mechanical engineering, including materials, thermodynamics, fluids, transport phenomena and human modeling and simulation. In their senior year, students complete an intensive laboratory component emphasizing measurement of biomechanical loading in both static and dynamic environments. In addition, the senior year capstone design course places students on a multidisciplinary team to solve an actual industrial design problem.

This major is perfect for students interested in Biomaterials, Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Tissue Engineering.
