Together, the two areas enable biomedical engineers to design procedures and devices that help the medical community diagnose and treat disease and injury, make medical testing less intrusive, enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities, and otherwise improve the practice of medicine. Biomedical engineers work alongside doctors, nurses, and other medical caregivers to develop and improve these technologies.

As one of the first graduating classes of the BME program at LTU and a current advisory board member, I’ve experienced the full development of LTU BME program over the years. Since its inception, the BME program has offered small class sizes with some of the area’s best instructors. Feedback form industry personnel and alumni outside the program, have continuously helped to grow, shape, and improve the program’s strong academic foundation.
The small classes in the BME program at LTU allowed me to work closely with faculty members -- which was fundamental in defining what my professional interests were as an undergraduate student -- and provided me with good research opportunities and connections that shaped my career path.
