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.
Required Courses for the Minor in Biomedical Engineering:
BME 177 – Physiology for Engineers (3 units)
Select one (1) course from Group A and one (1) course from Group B
Group A courses (Biology-based)
Biol 21 - Human Biology (4 units)
Biol 65 - Human Anatomy (4 units)
Group B courses (Engineering-based)
BME 117 – Biotransport Phenomena (3 units)
MatE 175 – Biomaterials (3 units)
