Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:

TO DECLARE MAJOR: Engineering is a controlled major: students are admitted into the major only if they meet established academic standards. The biomedical engineering combined with mechanical engineering program has additional admissions requirements and enrollment limits. Please see competitive major requirements or the advisor in the Department for more information.

TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER: The curriculum for this major assumes students enter college prepared to take calculus and chemistry. To qualify for graduation, students in the biomedical engineering combined with mechanical engineering must achieve a minimum 2.000 grade point average at CSU in all courses in engineering, mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, and chemistry as well as courses taken as technical electives.
