About BME

TCNJ’s School of Engineering established a BME Program in 2002 and the BME Department was formed in 2010.  It offers a design-based Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering degree as part of either a traditional 4-year experience or a 7-year medical program in conjunction with New Jersey Medical School. Our ABET accredited program focuses on core engineering principles to understand and model human body system function, control, treatment, and integration. Fundamental design principles are integrated throughout the curriculum with emphasis on medical devices and Design Control regulations. Students learn in state-of-art laboratories in TCNJ’s new STEM building that houses the BME program, gain hands-on experience with advanced engineering software and equipment during their entire academic career, and can participate in a competitive research track to pursue independent cutting-edge engineering research with our faculty. We offer small class sizes and direct interaction with core faculty in an interdisciplinary environment that allows students to engage with peers and faculty across the array of STEM disciplines.

Our students go on to be successful following graduation, including joining the workplace in an engineering capacity at medical device and engineering companies across the nation or earning graduate degrees from top research institutions or medical schools.

Our faculty members have diverse research interests and expertise, including:

  • Biomaterials
  • Orthopedic biomechanics
  • Cardiovascular Fluid Dynamics
  • Computational Engineering
  • Medical Device Design
  • Neural Engineering
  • Powered Prosthetics
  • Physiological System Control
  • Tissue Engineering
