The biomedical engineering (BME) emphasis will be administered by engineering physics, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. It is intended to have at least 4 new courses, and it is easiest to have a new subject for theses courses to avoid confusion. In the future, it is hoped to have a BME major, and to have more courses in this subject area.
The BME emphasis was approved by the API and the UW-Platteville administration. An NOI is currently being written to expand the emphasis to a major.
