Academic Advising

Due to the structure of additional major, navigating through the Biomedical Engineering requirements is different from primary engineering majors. Biomedical Engineering advisors collaborate with students to assist them in achieving their goals. They provide guidance on course selection and electives, verify progress toward degree requirements, and more. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with advisors in both Biomedical Engineering and in their primary engineering major.
