Cal State Fullerton has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation for a new undergraduate biomedical engineering program with a medical device emphasis, targeted to start fall 2017. To meet the workforce demand in the growing biomedical industry, the program will prepare students for careers in biomedical engineering and assistive and rehabilitation technology. The grant will support the purchase of lab equipment and curriculum development.

An option that will be added to the current bachelor's degree in engineering, the biomedical engineering program will immerse students in design projects, prototyping and research experiences. It will also emphasize interdisciplinary activities that include engineering, business, rehabilitation and other health disciplines. In the senior capstone design project, students will be able to design, create and test real biomedical devices.
