Biomaterials (BES)

The minor in Biomaterials is designed for students enrolled in programs leading to the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree who wish to obtain an understanding of how materials interact with the human body and how engineering materials can be de­signed to serve physiological functions. The minor includes a comprehensive selection of courses in materials science, biomechanics, and biology, as well as study of fluids and electricity as they relate to human physiology. The program serves as an excellent background for engineering students who wish to prepare for graduate education in medicine, bioengineering, and the biosciences or a related field, or for a career in which an understanding of biological concepts is essential.
