Stevenson University Biomedical Engineering program
Exciting news about Stevenson’s newest program, Biomedical Engineering. We recently received MHEC approval to start the program and we are now accepting applications. The program will prepare students to solve important human health-related scientific problems through the application of engineering principles, ideas, methods, and inventions. In addition to science and engineering coursework that emphasizes teamwork and problem-solving, students in Stevenson's program will be immersed in the professional setting and gain practical experience through a required internship and a capstone experience that is tailored to their career interests.
There is a priority application deadline of Feb. 15, 2019 for the biomedical engineering program. Like our Nursing program, students must be admitted to the University and into the biomedical engineering program. Students interested in applying to the program should be prepared to take calculus their first semester. We are looking for students with a high GPA and at least a 1200 on the SAT. Students admitted into the program generally receive $18,000-$20,000 in scholarships with the opportunity to apply for our Founders', Leadership, or Service Scholars Programs for up to an additional $4,000.
