The Biomedical Engineering Interdisciplinary Minor, coordinated by the School of Biomedical Engineering, offers students an interdisciplinary approach to biomedical engineering education, and research. This unique program combines veterinary medicine, engineering, and the life sciences to improve health and well-being, fight disease, and aid persons with disabilities. Students are required to complete core courses in bioengineering and human physiology. To complete the program, students take additional technical electives which vary depending on the individual student’s major (engineering or non-engineering).

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.

 Effective Fall 2017

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.
