CORE COURSES

Since Winter 2015, we have offered BME Core Courses as smaller 1 or 2-credit hour courses, referred to as modules.  The purpose of the Core Courses or Modules are to allow students to obtain and develop the desired knowledge and experience background needed for their research as recommended and approved by their Academic Advisor.  A variety of Core Courses or Modules are offered each Academic Year allowing students to mix and match modules.

  • All students must successfully complete at least 5-credit hours of Advisor Approved Core Courses. 
  • These courses are designed as short intense modules allowing "Engineering" and "Life Science" students insight into each other's academic area helping to foster an individual's research in Biomedical Engineering.  
  • Course Outlines may change from semester to semester without notice
