The field of Biomedical Engineering (BME)/Bioengineering is at the interface of engineering, life sciences, technology, and medicine, and has been articulated as an ever more prominent field in the engineering and medical sciences. Engineers working in this specialty apply engineering principles to the medical and biological sciences to design and develop equipment, devices, computer systems, software, and molecular and cellular engineering tools used in the medical, biotechnological, and pharmaceutical fields.

The Minor was designed to provide students with a basic proficiency in fundamental core areas in the field of BME/Bioengineering. Students are required to take a total of 16 credits satisfied by five core courses in the Minor, as shown below. BMS-UY 1004 is an established course. All ME courses offered in this track are new.


In order for the Minor to be awarded and recorded on the official student transcript, the student has to obtain an overall 2.00 GPA in the Minor courses.
