Elective Sequences

To gain expertise in a specific bioengineering discipline, students are required to select and complete an elective track sequence to satisfy the BSBE program requirements PRIOR to taking their first technical elective course (see link for the BSBE Elective Sequence Checkout Sheet). This consists of completing a series of five technical electives (15 credit hours) in engineering, mathematics, or the natural sciences.  These must include two technical electives that are BIOE 4XXX level courses.  To satisfy the track completion requirement, a minimum of three courses (9 hours) must be completed within the selected track category. The remaining two elective courses (6 hours) may be completed within any of the track categories but may also include a maximum of 3 hours of BIOE 4910 Bioengineering Honors Thesis or BIOE 4990 Bioengineering Independent Study.  However, BIOE 4910 or 4990 cannot be applied toward the 4000-level BIOE elective course requirement.
