Minor in Bioengineering

Students pursuing the Biomedical Engineering Minor will learn to integrate the tools of engineering analysis with fundamentals of life sciences to enliven the understanding of living organisms, medical treatments, and biochemical pathways with the goal of providing quantitative predictions and insight towards the design of medical and biological devices and processes.

The minor requires a total of six courses. Two of these courses may also be used to fill major requirements.

Students should take CBE 30386, Introduction to Bioengineering before declaring the minor. This course will be offered in spring semester each year

Students wishing to pursue the Biomedical Engineering Minor should contact Professor Glen Niebur <gniebur@nd.edu>.
