Good news for students looking to pursue careers in the biomedical industry: New undergraduate and graduate degrees in biomedical engineering could launch as early as fall 2020.   

The CU Board of Regents approved the new degrees in the College of Engineering and Applied Science in June. Through these bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, students will have the chance to pursue classes from across the university, across engineering, and in biology and mathematics. The goal, organizers say, is to tap into a medical world that increasingly gears treatments to individuals and depends on rapidly evolving technologies.

The degrees are the first of their kind in the CU system, and no other university in the state offers a stand-alone undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering.
