Requirements for the major in engineering biology, B.S. program

Coordinators: Darrin Hanna (SECS) with Shaleish Lal (Biological Sciences)

The program in engineering biology, offered jointly by the School of Engineering and Computer Science and the College of Arts and Sciences leads to the Bachelor of Science degree. It combines training in biology with depth in either computation or engineering. Students should consult with advisers for the majors to be certain they are on track for all requirements.

Course requirements (minimum of 130 total credits)

In order to earn the degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in engineering biology, students must complete a minimum of 130 credits, satisfy the general education requirements (see SECS Degree Requirements), and meet the following requirements:

General education – 28 credits

An approved math or science elective – 4 credits


*These course sequences satisfy the general education requirements for the formal reasoning, natural science/technology and knowledge applications categories.

Professional subjects – 15-16 credits

Professional track 4: electronic devices/signal analysis/bio-sensors

Performance requirements and additional general education notes

In addition to the previously stated requirements, satisfactory completion of the program requires an average grade of at least 2.00 in the courses taken to satisfy the engineering, chemistry, and mathematics and physics requirements. Students in this program are not required to complete the College of Arts and Sciences exploratory requirements, but must complete the general education requirements including capstone and writing intensive courses. In addition, this program requires an average grade of 2.00 in courses taken to satisfy the biology, chemistry, mathematical sciences and engineering requirements.
