Biomedical Engineering Minor

About the Minor in Biomedical Engineering

The Minor in Biomedical Engineering requires 18 credits of coursework that include a course in physiology and at least five BME courses. At least three of the BME courses must be selected at the 400-level, and all courses must be 200-level or above.

Normally, each course is three credit hours, and may include review sessions and lab projects. The grades in all BME courses must be C or better.

To initiate a Minor in BME, a student should file a “Minor in BME” plan with the department after meeting with a BME Faculty member to discuss the minor courses and their prerequisites. This form serves as a planning tool, not a rigid contract, and it will be on file with the department and with the student’s academic advisor in the major area.

In the final semester, the same form will serve as a graduation check with the Parks College Dean’s Office. The completion of a Minor in BME must be certified by the chair of the BME department as part of the graduation check.
