To enroll in 3000 or higher-level courses and to become candidates for the B.S. in Bioengineering, students must gain major standing. An application for major standing should be submitted prior to intended enrollment in 3000 or higher-level courses. Forms may be obtained from the SECS Undergraduate advising office or from the SECS website.
To gain major standing and be considered for a degree in Bioengineering, students must:
A) have an average of at least C in the following mathematics and sciences courses: BIO 1200 , BIO 1201 , MTH 1554 , MTH 1555 , APM 2555 , CHM 1440 , and PHY 1610
B) have an average of at least C in the following engineering core courses: EGR 1200 , EGR 1400 , EGR 2400 , EGR 2500 , EGR 2600 , and EGR 2800 .
C) have no more than two grades below C in the required courses in A and B above;
D) have not attempted any course listed in A and B above more than three times. Students may petition to repeat a course a fourth time; and
E) have not repeated more than three different courses. Courses in which a W (withdrawal) grade is recorded will not be counted.
Conditional major standing may be granted in the semester in which the student will complete the courses listed in A and B above.
In addition to the previously stated requirements, satisfactory completion of the program requires an average grade of at least C within each group: mathematics and sciences, engineering core, Bioengineering required, and professional tracks. For Bioengineering required and professional track courses, at most two grades below C are permitted, at most two different courses may be repeated, and a total of three attempts are permitted.
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.
