Department of Biomedical Engineering

The biomedical engineering program at The College of New Jersey is relatively young, having its first graduating class in 2007. Students enrolling in the program have two main decisions - whether to pursue a BS or BA degree, and whether to express a preference in electrical or mechanical engineering. The BS/BA distinction is important - students pursuing a BA have fewer courses to take than those pursuing a BS, and need not perform a senior project. Most students in the BA track are interested in entering medical school or graduate school, and feel that in the long run the exact nature of their undergraduate degree will not be crucial. Biomedical engineering students take a substantial number of courses in the biology department, and thus graduate with roughly the same number of credits as the traditional engineering programs, despite being in the engineering science department.

Famous quotes containing the words department of, engineering and/or department:

    I believe in women; and in their right to their own best possibilities in every department of life. I believe that the methods of dress practiced among women are a marked hindrance to the realization of these possibilities, and should be scorned or persuaded out of society.
    Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (1844–1911)

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    While the focus in the landscape of Old World cities was commonly government structures, churches, or the residences of rulers, the landscape and the skyline of American cities have boasted their hotels, department stores, office buildings, apartments, and skyscrapers. In this grandeur, Americans have expressed their Booster Pride, their hopes for visitors and new settlers, and customers, for thriving commerce and industry.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
