  • Minor
Other programs from the College of Engineering:

This minor is intended for undergraduate engineering students seeking to supplement their education by applying skills learned in their respective disciplines to the field of biomedical engineering (BME). The emphasis on upper level BME courses builds upon the foundation taught in core undergraduate engineering courses. Beyond the one required course, students will choose at least five elective courses in consultation with a Biomedical Engineering faculty advisor. Students and their advisor may select courses providing concentration in a particular subfield, or they may select courses providing breadth across the field of biomedical engineering. Examples of both types of curricula will be made available.

The Academic Minor

Many departments have designed academic minors for the convenience of undergraduate students. A minor is a structured group of courses that leads to considerable knowledge and understanding of a subject, although with less depth than a major. Some employers consider minors desirable, and the corresponding major requirements at the University may stipulate a minor. Some students choose to complement their major program with a minor in a related field or even in an entirely different field of interest. Students interested in pursuing an academic minor should contact their college dean’s office and the department responsible for the minor program for guidance and advising. Please note that undergraduate students can only complete a minor in addition to and as a complement to a major. The University does not award stand-alone minors.

Since biomaterials is an up-and-coming field, I thought adding the Biomedical Engineering minor to my Materials Engineering degree would create a unique profile for myself. I joined Professor David Puleo's biomaterials lab and it was a great fit. Adding the Biomedical Engineering minor has definitely given me an edge!
