Curriculum – Biomedical Concentration with Premedical Emphasis

The premedical emphasis area was developed to prepare students for entry into medical, dental, or veterinary schools. Students completing study in this area fulfill all the admission requirements of most medical schools. This emphasis area also offers a broad-based engineering degree to students who decide not to pursue advanced medical study. The acceptance rate for students applying to medical schools has always been greater than 85 percent.
