Biomedical engineers

Biomedical Engineers ...

  • Work with other health care professionals:

    • Physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians

  • Work in:

    • Hospital settings

    • Medical device companies

    • Academic institutions

    • Government organizations (FDA, NIH)

  • Design instruments, devices, and software to to develop new procedures

  • Conduct research needed to solve clinical problems


The future of the profession

The United States Department of Labor reports that “the number of biomedical engineering jobs will increase by 31.4 percent through 2010.”

“This is double the rate for all other jobs combined.”

Many students also go to graduate school, medical school, or law school following graduation

The Future of the Profession


Bme at ltu is exciting

The program is about 1 year old

We have 21 official students with some unofficial students

Theory and Practice

The program is growing very quickly

We are seeking partners for internships, research and senior projects

We have hired two new faculty

LTU has a strong life sciences group

BME at LTU is Exciting!
