Minor in Biomedical Engineering

​​The minor in Biomedical Engineering is open to all AUB students. Students who have completed at least 60 credits at the sophomore level and higher, and who have a cumulative average of 70 or more, may apply by completing the minor application form available in the ECE department. The minor will be indicated on the transcript of the student who completes all the requirements described below and obtains an average in the minor courses of 70 or more.

The minor requirements are divided into a set of core courses and a set of elective courses.

For engineering students, the requirements are as follows:

  • EECE 401 [1 cr.]
  • BIOL 201 [4 cr.]
  • BIOL 202 or PHYL 246 [4 cr.]
  • One core course [3 cr.] chosen from EECE 601, EECE 603, or MECH 633 depending on the chosen track of Biomedical Equipment, Neuro-engineering or Biomechanical, respectively.
  • One elective course from list A below [3 cr.]
  • One elective course from list A, B, or C below [3 cr.]
  • Minimum number of credits: 18

For biology students, the requirements are as follows:

  • EECE 401 [1 cr.]
  • BIOL 201 [4 cr.]
  • BIOL 202 [4 cr.]
  • EECE 210 [3 cr.] or equivalent, such as PHYS 228 and PHYS 228L and EECE 601 [3 cr.] for the Biomedical Equipment and Neuro-engineering track; or CIVE 210 [3 cr.] (or equivalent) and MECH 634 [3 cr.] for the Biomechanics track
  • One elective course from list A or B below [3 cr.]
  • Minimum number of credits: 18

For other students, the requirements are as follows:

  • EECE 401 [1 cr.]
  • BIOL 201 [4 cr.]

  • One elective course from list A, B, or C below [3 cr.]
  • Minimum number of credits: 18
