Minor Degree for BME
The minor in Biomedical Engineering is designed to provide an introduction to the field for science and engineering majors. The goal of the minor is to prepare students for graduate studies in BME. Engineering students should be able to transition easily into graduate programs; science majors may need additional math courses and some engineering fundamentals to be accepted by most BME graduate programs. The minor consists of 16 credit hours. However, it is the students responsibility to take the prerequisites that are required for some of the courses. Not all courses are offered every semester and students are advised that completion of the minor will take up to two semesters. Please Note: The Health Science courses are restricted to their majors. Health Science courses appear on the list of approved courses for the BME minor for health science majors who want to get a minor. Engineering and Science majors will need to pick other courses than health science courses to fulfill the minor requirements. Please talk with an advisor for more information. Please fill out a Request for a BME Minor Form and get the appropriate signatures.
Requirements for Biomedical Engineering Minor:
All students who enter the BME Minor must take:
- BIOL 2311/BIOL 2111 or BIOL 2313/BIOL 2113
- BME 3303 and BME 3305
- Refer to the Academic Catalog for an approved list of courses.
Every student has now been assigned an Academic Advisor who will assist you with course selection, general questions and link you to various resources.
(Science students have an advisor in the College of Science)
Refer to the table below to find the name of your advisor.
