About

The Biomedical Engineering at The University of Iowa prepares students to use contemporary methods at an advanced level during a professional career in engineering design, development, and research.

Overview

About Biomedical Engineering at The University of Iowa

Each student's course of study is based on individual background, career objectives, and sound academic practice. An individual program for each student may be developed from courses offered by the Roy J. Carver Department of Biomedical Engineering and other departments, especially mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physiology, mathematics, and biological sciences. Students who want a more general program may combine emphases, while those who want some specialization in a particular field can achieve their goals through the combination of departmental courses and appropriate electives from other departments in the College of Engineering and the University.

Careers

Biomedical engineers with M.S. degrees can pursue career opportunities in the health care industry in the fields of biomedical devices, diagnostic equipment, and software.
