The bioengineering minor is an interdisciplinary minor and includes courses from biology,
chemistry and engineering. The goal of the minor is to provide engineering students
with sufficient knowledge and skills in biology and in engineering to prepare them
to enter graduate research programs in biomedical and biochemical engineering, including
M.D. and Ph.D. programs.
In addition, engineering students completing the minor are well prepared to work as
bachelor's degree engineers in specialty biomedical and biochemical companies. The
bioengineering minor can also be used by pre−medical students in preparation for medical
For students graduating on catalogs issued before the 2013-2014 catalog, an additional
stats course is required. Acceptable courses include MATH 3342, IE 3341, and CHE 4372.
Requirements (For Non-Pre-Med Students)
The minor in Bioengineering consists of a minimum of six courses:
