Combine engineering principles with medical and biological sciences in SLU's biomedical engineering program.
Biomedical Engineering, Minor
The minor in biomedical engineering allows students to see how the biological and medical sciences can intersect with engineering to improve patient quality of life. They also have an opportunity to see first-hand how interdisciplinary the field of biomedical engineering is and the role that their primary major can play in the development of medical technologies. The minor also provides occupational awareness to students who may not know how medical technologies are created or what job opportunities would be available in the field.
To initiate a minor in biomedical engineering, a student must file a "Minor in BME" plan with the Department of Biomedical Engineering after meeting with a BME faculty member to discuss the minor courses and their prerequisites. The "Minor in BME" form serves as a planning tool and will be on file in the BME department and with the student's academic advisor in the major area. The completion of a minor in BME must be certified by the chair of the BME program coordinator as part of the graduation check.
The grades in all BME minor courses must be C- or better.
