Computational and Systems Biology

BME 3401 (or CSE 3810), 4400 (or BME 3100), 4401 (or BME 4810); CSE 1729; ECE 3101; MCB 2210, 2400 (or 2410); STAT 3965 or MATH 3170

Biomechanics and Mechanobiology

BME 3600; 3620, CE 2120, 3110; ME 2233, 3227 (or 3255), 3250; Elective (three credits, from BME or Track Elective list for Biomechanics and Mechanobiology)

Systems, Imaging and Instrumentation

BME 3500, 4201, 4500; ECE 3101, 3111, 3201 (or CSE 2301); STAT 3965 or MATH 3170.

No more than three credits of independent study (BME 4999) can count toward the 6-9 credits of BME electives.

The professional requirements and electives are specified in the Biomedical Engineering Guide to Course Selection and

The Biomedical Engineering undergraduate program educational objectives are that our alumni/ae: will be engaged in professional practice as engineers and/or scientists in occupational settings primarily involving human health and well-being; will advance in their professional careers; and will engage in professional development, or post-graduate education, to continuing their self-development in biomedical engineering or other related fields.

The Biomedical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
