Minors of particular interest to students majoring in bioengineering: biochemistry (BCH), biology (BIO), chemistry (CHE), optics (OPT)

The Minor in Bioengineering
The bioengineering minor is designed for College of Arts and Sciences students who wish to obtain a more thorough understanding of how physical forces in the natural world influence the development and history of plants, animals, and single cell organisms on earth. Coursework introduces these concepts and shows how an engineering approach can be useful in dealing with the natural world. The program serves as an excellent background for students who wish to prepare for graduate study in bioengineering or a related field or to prepare for a career in which an understanding of engineering concepts would provide an advantage.

Requirements for the Minor in Bioengineering (BNG)
