Want to become a biomedical engineer but not sure where to focus or how to get there? This engineering course will give you an overview of this wildly popular and vast field, as you learn about more than two dozen areas of focus and get a peek at some of the cool and exciting advances going on at top institutions. Along the way, you’ll meet more than three dozen biomedical engineers—from top names in the field to those just starting their careers.

Through exercises, you’ll get to think like a BME and experience the various areas to see which fits your interests and talents.

Finally, once you have a better sense of where you’d like to focus, our educational and career advice will help show you how to get there.

While targeted to students exploring a career in biomedical engineering, anyone curious about this fascinating field will find something of interest: from the thinking processes of pilots and baseball batters to an inside view of a beating heart to developments in bionics, exoskeletons, and nanotechnology.

Join us on a journey through the world of biomedical engineering.

Verified students are eligible to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs), valid toward continuing education requirements for many professional certifications.
