Biomedical Engineering Minor
The minor in Biomedical Engineering requires a total of nine courses - two advanced mathematics courses, five core Biomedical Engineering courses, and two Biomedical Engineering electives. Some of these courses may include prerequisites that may or may not be part of a students course requirements for their major. Private biomedical industry has indicated a keen interest in engineers that have a more traditional engineering degree (i.e. electrical engineering), but also possess some in-depth knowledge of biomedical systems. Hence, the minor in Biomedical Engineering is designed to provide a student with the introductory skills necessary to perform as an engineer in the biomedical arena.
Admissions. Students interested in the minor in Biomedical Engineering must apply through The Henry Samueli School of Engineering Student Affairs Office and must have a UCI cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
NOTE: Students may not receive both a minor in Biomedical Engineering and a specialization in Biochemical Engineering within the Chemical Engineering major.
