Bioengineering Course Curriculum and Flow Charts
Select the curriculum requirements based on your catalog year (entering year in parentheses). Check with your faculty advisor if you are unsure which requirements you are following.
Biomedical Engineering (BME) Concentration
Students interested in the Biomedical Engineering concentration, must meet specific admission requirements in their first two years to be considered for this concentration.
Admission to the Biomedical Engineering Concentration requires a B- or better in EGR 241 (Statics) and CHM 152 (Principles of Modern Chemistry II). Qualified students should apply no later than the end of the sophomore spring semester.
The concentration consists of a set of eight Biomedical Engineering Foundation Core courses, one Biomedical Engineering Core course, and two electives chosen from an approved list of either Cell and Tissue Engineering or Medical Devices and Manufacturing. Students in the BME concentration will also choose a related senior design project. In order to graduate with the concentration, students must have a 2.000 bioengineering major GPA and a 2.500 BME GPA.
Premedicine Track (or "Premed")
This undergraduate program in bioengineering is designed so that students can easily fulfill the requirements for medical school admission and at the same time receive an outstanding engineering education.
Students interested in the pre-medicine track should meet with the pre-health advisor and their faculty advisor early in the program to ensure appropriate courses are completed in a timely manner.
Student research opportunities are available at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
UMass Dartmouth also participates in the UMass Medical School Baccalaureate MD Pathway Program.
