Students may use these electives to probe more deeply into multiple sub-disciplines, or choose to concentrate all courses within the same sub-discipline. For the latter case, the following combinations of electives are suggested:
- Cardiovascular Systems: BMED 4751, 4757, 4758, 4781 and/or 4784
- Biomechanics: BMED 4751, 4757 and 4758
- Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering: BMED 4500, 4751, 4758 and/or 4765
- Neuroengineering: BMED 4400, 4752, 4781 and 4784
- Medical Imaging: BMED 4750, 4752 and 4783
Seniors with a grade point average of at least 3.5 may schedule graduate level BMED courses as acceptable alternatives, subject to the approval of the course professor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Depth electives form other majors
Many engineering courses that build on one of our core required BMED courses can also be used to satisfy depth electives. A list of pre-approved courses from other majors can be found here: Depth Electives From Other Majors
Research as depth elective
Up to six hours of research for credit (BMED 2699/4699) will be allowed to count as BMED depth elective credit, provided the research was conducted in the same lab over a period of at least two semesters (Note: BMED 2698/4698 (research for pay) may be used to help satisfy the two-semester requirement). Students who want to use BME-related research conducted in a lab in another school/department will have to have this pre-approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Research credit cannot be used as Depth Elective credit if the Research Option is selected for the Breadth Electives.
