Minor in Biomedical Engineering
Undergraduate students majoring in any field of science or engineering may take a Minor in Biomedical Engineering. A Minor requires a minimum of 12 additional units of approved biomedical engineering courses, beyond those courses required for the student's Major. Students may also elect to take biomedical engineering courses as technical electives to fulfill their Major requirements.
To plan for a Minor in Biomedical Engineering students should visit the Biomedical Engineering Advisor, and complete a Minor Form.
To take biomedical engineering courses as technical electives, as part of another Major, students should contact an academic advisor in their own department. Any student with appropriate prerequisites or consent of instructor is welcome to enroll in biomedical engineering courses.
