Graduates of the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) work in the global community. To compete and make the greatest impact in this global environment, the department offers study abroad opportunities designed to give students the skills necessary to create partnerships that span borders and transcend physical limitations.
Through the department’s Maymester program, students spend four to five weeks taking required courses from BME faculty in an international setting. Previous Maymester programs have been held in Lille and Paris, France, and Cambridge, United Kingdom. These unique programs allow students to experience different cultures and interact with people throughout the world, while at the same time completed portions of their required curriculum. Tuition for these courses is included in spring semester tuition, but students are responsible for covering the costs of the program, which vary generally between $2,500 and $4,700.
