Why get a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Biomedical Option degree?

Biomedical engineering is the application of the principles of engineering to the solution of problems in medicine and biology. This option provides students a more intensive specialization in the field during their undergraduate degree than the traditional Electrical Engineering program, and helps prepare students for graduate studies in biomedical engineering, employment in the health-care industry, or application to an MD program.
