2005-2006 Biomedical Engineering: Premedical Bachelor of Science Major Requirements

2005-2006 UCI Bachelor Degree Requirements

2005-2006 Engineering School Requirements

Major Requirements

Mathematics and Basic Science Courses: Students must complete a minimum of 48 units of mathematics and basic sciences including:

Core Courses: Mathematics 2A-B, 2D, 2J, and 3D; Chemistry 1A-B-C, 1LB-LC, 51A-B-C and 51LA-LB; Physics 7A-B-D-E and 7LA-LB-LD.

Engineering Topics Courses: Students must complete a minimum of 28 units of engineering design including:

Core Courses: Biological Sciences 97, 98, 99, 100L, D103 or D104, D111L, 194S, BME 1, BME 50A-B, BME 110A-B, BME 111, BME 120, BME 121, BME 130, BME 150, BME 160. Students select, with the approval of a faculty advisor, at least three additional engineering topic courses needed to satisfy school and major requirements.

(The nominal Biomedical Engineering: Premedical program will require 196 units of courses to satisfy all university and major requirements. Because each student comes to UCI with a different level of preparation, the actual number of units will vary).

Planning a Program of Study

The sample program of study chart shown is typical for the major in Biomedical Engineering: Premedical. Students should keep in mind that this program is based upon a sequence of prerequisites, beginning with adequate preparation in high school mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Students who are not adequately prepared, or who wish to make changes in the sequence for other reasons, must have their program approved by their faculty advisor. Biomedical Engineering: Premedical majors must consult at least once every year with the academic counselors in the Student Affairs Office and with their faculty advisors.
