Students will be required to select a degree option at the time they enter the biomedical engineering program. At that time, they will also be assigned an adviser who is familiar with the requirements of the option they have chosen.

Students will meet with their advisers on a regular interval to discuss their progress and assess future goals. Students are encouraged to schedule advising meetings to discuss course selections career goals, summer internship and research opportunities or other educational concerns.

For all undergraduate questions or to request an appointment, please email the biomedical engineering undergraduate assistant at
