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

Non-engineering majors

The minor is open to all majors. However the engineering coursework will expect proficiency in calculus and physics, even if these courses are not listed as prerequisites. Students should take at least two semesters of calculus, such as MATH 10550 and 10560, and two semesters of calculus based physics, such as PHYS 10310 and 10320.

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