Students in motion capture lab

In Bucknell's highly regarded biomedical engineering program, you'll shape your education with your own hands. You'll get into the lab and start designing from your first semester on campus. As you learn, you’ll be guided by expert faculty in small classes and explore new ground in undergraduate research experiences. By the time you graduate, you'll have spent a year partnering with medical professionals to tackle a real-world health care problem. Our students have even received patents, fabricated prosthetic hands for disabled children, and had their work deployed in clinical research at a hospital.

Major or Minor in Biomedical Engineering

Bucknell offers a bachelor of science in biomedical engineering, a minor in biomedical engineering and elective courses for students looking to diversify their skills.
