Unparalleled co-op program. UToledo is one of just eight programs in the U.S. to require a co-op experience for all engineering students. Bioengineering students complete three semesters of paid work:
In the biomedical device industry (developing biomedical devices and innovative health-care solutions)
At major medical centers, such as Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and the University of Pittsburgh (conducting cutting-edge biomedical research)
UToledo’s program makes you more marketable. Our accredited program has a broad focus unique to bioengineering programs. We require undergrads to have proficiency in the three focus areas of bioengineering: biomechanical, bioelectrical and biochemical.
A smart pre-med major. Bioengineering majors are accepted into medical school at higher rates than students with physical sciences degrees due to their technical expertise and problem-solving skills. UToledo’s bioengineering undergraduates acquire:
Research skills valued by the best medical schools
A technically-rigorous education that prepares them for advances in medical technologies
All pre-medicine course work requirements integrated into the bioengineering program of study
Bioengineering offers a variety of pre-med pathways.
Joint Bacc2MD Pathway program with The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences. Accepted students who fulfill program requirements are guaranteed an early-admission medical school interview, no MCAT required.
Specialize. UToledo bioengineering majors tailor their course work in specialized areas such as biomechanics, biochemical engineering, manufacturing and quality control, medical imaging, and tissue engineering. We offer state-of-the-art laboratories and classes.
