Biomedical Engineering Curriculum

 General Requirements of the Degree

The Biomedical Engineering (BME) program consists of 125 total credit hours. The curricula include 28 credit hours of general education courses in English, arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and emerging issues. An additional 12 credits in mathematics and physical sciences are required under the General Education program, which are included as a part of the requirements for the Engineering major. This makes the total credits for General Education to be 40 credit hours. The Biomedical Engineering curriculum also requires 27 credits of supportive math, physics and biology courses. Students take 43 credit hours of core biomedical engineering courses. Students choose 15 credit hours of elective courses from either of the two elective tracks of 1) biomechanics and tissue engineering, or 2) bioelectrics and biocomputational engineering. The program is on semester base.
