Undergraduate Programs

Balasubramanian Classroom

Biomedical Engineering at Drexel is one of the most unique and comprehensive ABET-accredited programs in the country. Our cooperative education (co-op) program offers a healthy mix of classroom and real world experience. Coursework alternates with real-world employment in industry, healthcare institutions, and medical laboratories, including work with our distinguished faculty in Drexel's world-class laboratories on tissue engineering, bionanotechnology, biosensors and bioimaging, neuroengineering, and bioinformatics.

The biomedical engineering (BME) bachelor of science (BS) degree program 

The School of Biomedical Engineering, Sciences and Health Systems offers an innovative undergraduate degree program in Biomedical Engineering in partnership with the College of Engineering.

The Accelerated Degree (BS/MS) Program

The BS/MS dual degree is an accelerated program providing the academically qualified student an opportunity to simultansously earn both BS and MS degrees (two diplomas are awarded) in program areas of his/her choice in five years, the time normally required to finish a bachelor's degree alone.


The majority of students in Biomedical Engineering choose the 5-year program and graduate with 18 months of full-time work experience, and often a job offer from their third co-op employer or from a connection made from one of their co-op experiences.
