The Biomedical, Chemical, and Materials Engineering (BCME) Department has been split into two departments, Biomedical Engineering, and Chemical and Materials Engineering due to the large student enrollments in each new department. The new department websites are at these links:

NOTE:All the pages at the old BCME department website will be available for several months after which the old website will not be available. Make sure you familiarize yourself with the new department websites.

Be a part of the solution! 

Biomedical, Chemical and Materials Engineers make a difference by designing new biomedical devices, chemicals, materials, and processing that better the world.

Graduates of our department find jobs in Silicon Valley and beyond, working as process engineers, failure analysis engineers, manufacturing  engineers, plant engineers, biomedical device engineers, as well as in research and development. Our graduates can be found in all kinds of industrial sectors, including semiconductors and microelectronics, biomedical devices, biotech and pharmaceuticals, alternative energy, environmental remediation, health and safety as well as in traditional industries such as petroleum processing and metallurgy. Many of our students go onto graduate schools all over the country.
