Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering Program at South Dakota Mines is housed within the Department of Nanoscience & Nanoengineering. We offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biomedical Engineering that equip our graduates to enter a growing career field where healthcare and engineering intersect. This career field has a 7% job growth projected through the year 2026, so graduates can feel confident they will find an exciting and meaningful career. 

Technology advancements play a major role in modern healthcare. Surgeons use robotic equipment in the operating room, 3D printers create artificial limbs, and healthcare software has replaced paper records. By combining engineering principles with medical and biological sciences, biomedical engineers play an important role in the present and future of healthcare.  

Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program Educational Objectives

The goal of the Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program is to prepare students for successful careers by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and competencies sought by employers and graduate/professional programs.

South Dakota Mines aims to produce graduates from the Biomedical Engineering program who demonstrate the following within a few years of graduation:
