- MSE 2001 or 2101;
- PNB 2264 or 2274;
- STAT 3025Q;
- BME electives (six credits; taken from designated list of BME courses for each track);

The professional requirements and electives are specified in the Biomedical Engineering Guide to Course Selection and www.bme.uconn.edu.
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, www.abet.org.
