Electrical Engineering, Emphasis in Bioelectronics Sample Curriculum

The exact chronological order of the courses depends on AP credits, summer courses, choice of electives, and number of credits per semester. Thus, different students will take some courses in different chronological order.

Below is a typical schedule, shown as an example of the chronological order, not as a fixed course schedule for all students. However, some courses are essential prerequisites for more advanced courses.
