Track Electives

Curriculum & Track 

The bioengineering undergraduate curriculum prepares students for industry, graduate school, and professional schools. As students progress through the general bioengineering curriculum, they will develop competencies in (1) math, statistics, and computation, (2) applied engineering techniques, and (3) specialized areas of study associated with the student’s specific bioengineering track.  Bioengineering students select their particular track focus for the final two years of study.
