BS in Electrical Engineering – Premed Concentration

Objective

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers accredited program leading to BS degrees in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) with a Premed Concentration. This program allows motivated students to obtain the rigorous education of a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering while simultaneously completing the basic science requirements necessary for applying to medical or dental school. Much of the excitement in engineering involves applications of electrical and computer engineering to problems in health, such as the development of nano-scale biosensors or the signal processing analysis of DNA sequences. The BSEE – Premed Concentration program is accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).

The objectives of the BSEE – Premed Concentration program is to prepare graduates who, within the first four to six years after graduation are, either:

  • Working as a professional or as an entrepreneur in an area closely related to electronics, dental school, biomedical systems, medical school, or
  • Exhibit lifelong learning by pursuing or having completed a graduate or professional degree and/or demonstrated professional development

 

Curriculum

Students enrolled in BSEE – Premed Concentration program are required to complete 136 course credits.
