Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics: BEAM Resources

Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics at Virginia Tech

Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics encompasses many aspects of engineering and science, but emphasizes the mechanical sciences. Depending upon the curricular options taken, the Virginia Tech graduate should be able to pursue careers from other disciplinary streams, such as mechanical engineers, aerospace engineers, materials engineers, materials scientists, biomedical engineers, and even chemical and civil engineers.

An engineering physics option within BEAM allows a student to consider fields such as nanotechnology, engineering facets of particle physics, and various aspects of the development of advanced materials.
