STARKVILLE Mississippi State University will add two new biomedical engineering degree programs in August.
The programs will focus on four different areas:
Bio materials, a study of materials implanted in the body and how the materials react in the body. It is used for joint replacement;
Tissue engineering, studies how to grow cartilage cells to generate new tissue to implant back in the body. This can be used for replacement organs;
Ergonomics and human factors focusing on reducing negative impact in the work place. This could be used to prevent repetitive motion injuries;
Modeling and bio simulation focuses on trying to simulate biological experiences. Used to predict disease through computer modeling.
The new programs are available only at the Starkville campus due to finances and space available for the programs.
