Biomedical Engineering Degree

Program Overview

The biomedical engineering major is designed to provide an engineering background for students planning to pursue advanced studies in biomedical engineering, medicine or other health professions The biomedical engineering major places emphasis on the theory and principles of biosystems and biomedical instrumentation.

ORU Distinguishing Features

A distinguishing feature of the engineering program at ORU is its broad liberal arts base. This foundation equips students in the application of science and technology for the improvement of the world and enables graduates to enter the engineering and scientific communities and contribute to the healing of the human condition.

At ORU you have the opportunity to apply what you learn and test the theories in the real world. Students at all levels are involved with creative cutting-edge projects such as creating a full-sized composite aircraft, a remote-controlled mine-sweeping robot or a shark-bite meter.


Engineering graduates are in high demand and typically receive high starting salaries. Some ORU graduates choose to use their education in the mission field or to pursue graduate studies at major universities. Many also work for a wide range of industries including Baker Hughes, Danaher, Boeing, G.E., Cessna and Toyota.
