Why Study Biomaterials?

The minor in Biomaterials is designed for students enrolled in programs leading to the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree who wish to obtain an understanding of how materials interact with the human body and how engineering materials can be de­signed to serve physiological functions. The minor includes a comprehensive selection of courses in materials science, biomechanics, and biology, as well as study of fluids and electricity as they relate to human physiology. The program serves as an excellent background for engineering students who wish to prepare for graduate education in medicine, bioengineering, and the biosciences or a related field, or for a career in which an understanding of biological concepts is essential.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Bioelectricity & Bioimaging
  • Biomechanics & Biomaterials
  • Molecular & Cellular Biomedical Engineering

SAMPLE COURSES:

  • Digital Systems Design
  • Biomaterials: Properties & Applications
  • Bioelectricity
  • Biofluids

ADMISSION INFO:

Electrical Engineering (ESE), Engine­ering Science (ESG), and Mechanical Engineering (MEC) majors may choose to complete the sequence of courses for the minor as they relate to their major program.

After Graduation

Your college decision isn't really about the next four years. We get it. It’s about what doors are opened by your degree and whether those opportunities are what you had envisioned for yourself. Nearly 95% of SBU grads go to professional or graduate school. Here's a snapshot of what life after graduation looks like for some of them.

CAREER OPTIONS:

  • Senior R&D Engineer
  • Bioinformatics Scientist
  • Process Development Engineer
  • Senior Associate Scientist

RECENT EMPLOYERS:

  • MicroVention
  • Mt Sinai Hospital Systems
  • Boston Scientific
  • Pfizer Pharmaceuticals
