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 engineering, in order
to prepare them for entrance into 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.
For students graduating on catalogs issued before the 2013-2014 catalog, an additional
statistics course is required. Acceptable courses include MATH 3342, IE 3341, and CHE 4372.
The minor in Bioengineering consists of a minimum of six courses:
