B.Sc. In Biomedical Engineering Southern California Institute of Technology
SCIT's Biomedical Engineering program introduces students to the medical applications of engineering. Courses branch out from firm foundations in electronics and mathematics to concentrate on the key fields of Biomedical Engineering such as BioMechanics, BioImaging, BioMaterials, and Medical Instrumentation Design. The program aims to provide students with a diverse engineering background to succeed in Biomedical Engineering related fields.
Biomedical Engineering is a cross between engineering and biological sciences; however, SCIT's program focuses primarily on the field's engineering aspects. Students begin by building a strong engineering foundation from the basics. Principles of electricity, digital, and analog circuitry concepts and solid mathematical foundations will be the building blocks for a successful understanding of biomedical engineering applications extending to digital signal processing, Matlab computer programming, and Medical Instrumentation Design.
Engineering is an applied science, key term: Applied. Theoretical concepts discussed in the lecture are cemented through application-based labs to show students the practical elements of the biomedical theory. Due to a significant portion of the program containing lab work, students will be working in various SCIT's instructional lab facilities, from the Biomedical Lab to the Robotics & Automation Lab.
