Biomedical Engineering Innovation introduces biomedical engineering to high school students by (1) modeling biological systems and designing experiments to test those models and (2) introducing engineering principles to solve design problems that are biological, physiological, and/or medical. Students will model human efficiency, the arm, and the cardiovascular system. Students are expected to use the informational content being taught in math, physics and biology and to apply this knowledge to the solution of practical problems encountered in biomedical engineering.
Students who earn an A or B grade in the course receive 3 credits from Johns Hopkins University.
If you are accepted to and matriculate as an undergraduate student at JHU, the credits awarded by JHU for this BMEI course are available to count towards your undergraduate degree at JHU. Credits may be applied towards your total required credits to graduate.
Admission to the Biomedical Engineering Innovation Program does not automatically guarantee admission into the undergraduate program at Johns Hopkins University.
Course number: EN.500.130
The application for Spring 2021 will open in mid-October.
If you have a question about the program, you can contact us during regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Eastern time).
