Biomechanical Engineering Minor

About the Program

This minor is administered through the Mechanical Engineering department, please contact Ben Moore with any questions.

To obtain a Biomechanical Engineering Minor, students must take at least 18.0 credits from the courses listed below. Fundamentals of Biology I (CBEN110) and Introduction to Biomechanical Engineering (MEGN330) are required (7.0 credits). More courses may be chosen from the proposed list of electives. The list of electives will be modified as new related courses become available.
