Courses from a concentration fulfill the BME Depth Electives.

Biomaterials and Bio-pharmaceutical Technology Concentration

(Choose two courses to declare this concentration)

Computational Biosystems Concentration

(Choose two courses to declare this concentration)

Biomedical Devices and Instrumentations Concentration (Choose two courses to declare this concentration)

Pre-Health Concentration

(Students who wish to complete the pre-health concentration, but are not planning on taking the MCAT, must complete two courses from the pre-health concentration below, in addition to any two engineering depth electives from the other three BME concentrations.
