From medical devices to innovations in surgical equipment, you will learn how to optimize and problem-solve for the future.
Biomedical engineering co-op opportunities
Ranked top 5 for co-op (US World News & World Report), our students gain real-world experience at research and engineering firms around the world. Biomedical engineering co-op positions offer diverse, professional experience in designing surgical instruments, artificial organs, prosthetics, and care delivery systems. Possible co-op companies you can work for include: AtriCure, Inc., Boston Scientific, Cincinnati Children’s Hospitals, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Mitek Sports Medicine, Enable Injections, and Kinetic Vision, and more!
What does biomedical engineering coursework look like?
Take courses that cover the forces, motions, shape changes, and biomechanics of biological tissues and organ systems, designing surgical instruments, artificial organs, prosthetics, and care delivery systems. You can also customize an academic track through a senior capstone project and upper-level technical electives.
"The professional mentorships that I've been able to create while on co-op are invaluable to me as I look towards a full-time position.”
