B.S. in Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical engineers serve people, work with living systems, and apply advanced technology to the complex problems of medical care. They may be called upon to design instruments and devices to diagnose and treat disease, engineer tissues to repair wounds, develop cutting-edge genetic treatments, or create computer programs to understand how the human body works.

The curriculum emphasizes education in the fundamentals of engineering sciences that form the common basis of all engineering subspecialties. Elements of bio-engineering design are incorporated at every level in the curriculum through integration of laboratory experimentation, computer applications, and exposure to actual bio-engineering problems throughout the program.
Crystal Rapier is conducting research at the Lee Lab housed at the University of California, Irvine. She is trying to develop bio-absorbable materials that can be implanted in the body. Her primary research focuses on Biomedical Technology with challenges including Heart Disease.
