Penn has no BioMed

<p>I looked for it on their site, but it seems they don’t have a Biomedical Engineeiring offering at Penn.</p>

<p>I know.... It is sad. But they have bioengineering, so I said i'd major in that. They also have a Biomedical sciences major - not too sure what that is though. Hopefully they'll create biomedical engineering within the next couple years.</p>

<p>med school suxx0r</p>

<p>bioeng. and biomed...are they even remotely similar..?</p>

<p>same difference it's just that biomed has a more medical focus</p>

<p>Vinzzy, bioengineering and biomedical engineering are largely the same thing with BME being more systems-level focused. BioEng is more cellular/molecular level research based. (to my knowledge) </p>

<p>I don't think you need to be working yourself up.</p>

<p>I went to the Penn website and looked around. Go to:</p>

<p>scroll down just a bit and click on the videos. Bioengineering sounds VERY close to biomedical engineering (from what i saw in the video)</p>

<p>AHHHH! I want it! I want it! I want it!</p>

<p>bioengineering is a huge field. biomedical engineering is just an offshoot of bioe. the penn e bioe curriculum is centered around biomedical engineering.</p>

<p>I thought bioe was genetic engineering, at the molecular/cellular level.. but that is WRONG. An example from the penn video shows a girl doing bioe and all the things she is working on/ cites examples for are from the field of biome ("engineering with biology in mind".. special chairs, pacemakers, etc).</p>

<p>for molecular/cellular level penn has stellar genomics/informatics/ etc departments. engineering is actually.. building stuff..</p>

<p>if you want to do biome... penn is the place. I would almost say their bioe curriculum is too focused.</p>

<p>"The department has consistently been ranked as one of the best bioengineering programs in the country for preparing students for careers in industry, medicine, academia, and other fields related to biomedical technology." - striaght from the source.</p>

<p>Their biophysics program dominates. I think his name is P. Nelson, but that guy wrote the definitive book on biophysica -- literally. (Biological Physics, P. Nelson).</p>
