Students completing the requirements for this degree automatically earn a minor in mathematics. Through careful selection of engineering electives and electives taken toward one of the three optional tracks (see below), it may be possible for a student to fulfill the requirements for a minor in electrical engineering technology/mechanical engineering technology/electrical engineering/mechanical and energy engineering. (Through course selection, a student may specialize in electrical engineering technology or mechanical engineering technology. With consent of the department, a student may be permitted to specialize in mechanical and energy engineering.)

Electives, 12 hours

12 hours to fulfill one of three tracks:

  • Biomedical instrumentation: 12 hours in BMEN, EENG or ELET courses
  • Biomechanics: 12 hours in BMEN, MEEN or MEET courses
  • Bioinformatics: 12 hours in BMEN or CSCE courses

Other requirements

  • A grade point average of at least 2.5 is required for all engineering foundations courses.
