Curriculum – Biological Engineering Base

The base curriculum of the Biological Engineering program gives students the solid foundation needed for pursuing career in engineering, for pursuing advanced degree in engineering and other professional schools such as medical, law, veterinary,  physical therapy, and others. Some students choose to pursue graduate schools in engineering, business, and other disciplines. The base curriculum gives students more flexibility in choosing their technical elective courses and to give them more options in selecting possible future pathways in employments, graduate schools, professional schools, and others.  The broad and solid foundation our students get in engineering, mathematics, modeling, life sciences, agriculture, advanced electronics and sensors, and other modern computational tools, give them the ability to solve broader problems in engineered systems, biological systems including human body and human health, the environment, and other multidisciplinary issues. Student can compete for private and government jobs in many areas that require problem-solving skills.
