Essential Information

In Georgia, training in biomedical engineering technology ranges from certificate to doctoral programs. However, Georgia Tech is the only college that offers a certificate program in biomaterials, which comprises many topics studied in biomedical engineering technology, such as biofluid mechanics. A few other schools offer degree programs, including Emory and Georgia Tech, which administer biomedical engineering technology programs jointly through the same department. Some programs integrate an internship component so that students can gain hands-on skills in the field. Read on to learn more about the colleges and universities in Georgia that offer programs in biomedical engineering.

Chattahoochee Technical College

Chattahoochee Tech, in Marietta offers electrical and computer engineering technology associate degree program that allows students the opportunity to specialize in biomedical engineering technology. Students explore a variety of electrical and computer topics, such as digital systems, circuits and networking systems. They also study bioengineering topics, such as anatomy, physiology and medical equipment. In addition to conventional coursework, students may also complete a capstone project and a medical systems internship, which allows them to work hands-on in creating circuits, designing and conducting quality assurance studies.

Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University

The biomedical degree programs at Georgia Tech and Emory, both located in Atlanta are offered through the schools' biomedical engineering department, which they run jointly. The department offers a bachelor's degree program, a master's degree program and two Ph.D. programs in the subject. Undergraduate students may explore topics such as conservation principles, diagnostic imaging physics, neuroscience, biofluid mechanics, nueroengineering and biomedical engineering design. Georgia Tech administers its own master's degree program in bioengineering, in addition to a certificate program in biomaterials, which encompasses topics such as polymer science, biomaterials and engineering materials.

Mercer University

Mercer, located in Macon offers a 30-credit master's degree program in biomedical engineering that is comprised of three areas of emphasis: biomedical instrumentation, computational fluid dynamics and biomechanics. Students will explore a variety of topics, such as tissue engineering, medical devices, surface modification, biomechanics and composite materials. In addition to conventional coursework in the above areas, students are also required to conduct thesis research and participate in seminars. They may also study of range of special course topics, such as clinical lab automation, cardiac mechanics, clinical information systems and health care delivery systems.

Morehouse College

Atlanta's Morehouse offers a master's degree program in biomedical technology through its School of Medicine. Course topics include medical informatics, clinical research, epidemiology, biostatistics, pharmacology and immunology. The program is designed for students seeking specialized expertise in certain biotechnologies that will allow them to pursue internships and/or careers in labs from various sectors, both public and private.
