Biomedical Engineers work at the forefront of research and industry and frequently address clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications of engineering.  Biomedical Engineers use engineering skills to design devices or develop methods that interface with biomedical systems to benefit society. Instruction in this minor is directed toward the instrumentation and techniques employed to analyze biomedical systems and processes, the challenges and methodologies associated with manipulating biological systems, and the current and future applications of Biomedical Engineering.

This minor is only available to students matriculated into an engineering degree program at the University of Maine.  This minor is not available to students pursing the Biomedical Engineering major.
