Bioengineering (BNG)

The Bioengineering minor is the same as the Biomedical Engineering Specialization track within the Biology major. The 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 biological systems. Coursework introduces these concepts and shows how an engineering approach can be useful in dealing with questions in biology and medicine. The program serves as an excellent background for students who wish to prepare for graduate study in bioengineering or a related field, or for a career in which an understanding of engineering concepts would provide an advantage.
