Academic Plans, Old and New Curriculum

The Biomedical Engineering Program has introduced a number of curricula revisions that are in effect for all students who started at Penn State in Summer 2018 or later. Students who started at Penn State before Summer 2018 are under the rules of the previous program.

For the next few years, the two curricula will coexist until all students of the old curriculum have graduated. During this period of coexistence, it is very important that you understand clearly which of the two curricula applies to you. The distinction is based on your first semester at Penn State, not on the semester that you were admitted to the major. If you are unclear about which curriculum applies to you, please see your adviser.

To see your academic plan, please select the link below that applies to you: 

Students entering Penn State before SU 18 (Biochemical, Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Medical Imaging & Device Option)

Students entering Penn State after SU 18 (Biochemical, Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Medical Imaging & Device Option)

Students entering Penn State before SU 18 (Concurrent Degree Plan for Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering)

Students entering Penn State after SU 18 (Concurrent Degree Plan for Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering)

Students entering Penn State before SU 18 (Pre-Med track/ Health Professions Preparation)

Students entering Penn State after SU 18 (Pre-Med track/ Health Professions Preparation)
