4 Sample Biomedical Engineering Plan of Study

Here is a sample plan of study, followed exactly as outlined. The best order of classes will depend on the needs of the student and the Undergraduate Advising can assist in selection of courses. Note: many students use the summer semesters for courses in the Sciences and Math and for the Gen Ed requirements. Descriptions of Bioengineering Department courses can be found at www.bioen.utah.edu/

4.1 Additional Notes

1.
As an alternative to this math sequence, students may take MATH 1270 and 1280 or the three-semester calculus series MATH 1210, 1220, and 2210.

2.
Students who have not had AP Biology in high school (with a score of 4 or 5) should take BIOL 1210 as a prerequisite to BIOL 2020.

3.
Math 3070 is an acceptable replacement for BIOEN 3070. However, taking the Math edition increases the track class requirement for College of Engineering courses from 5 of 15 hours to 8 of 15 hours.

4.
All students must take BIOEN 4200 or BIOEN 4990 at least once before they begin the senior project (BIOEN 4201). Students may also repeat BIOEN 4200 or BIOEN 4990 up to once and apply that credit to the track requirements.

5.
Students who perform a research internship outside of the University of Utah or with a faculty mentor who is not a member of the Department of Bioengineering must seek prior approval for BIOEN 4200 and, upon completion, a grade from the Major Advisor.

6.
BIOEN 4200 will be offered for the first time in Summer Semester, 2009. Students anticipating taking Senior Project in fall, 2009 are encouraged to take BIOEN 4200 at this time. Any student who has already completed a research project should still sign up for the course and will receive a grade from the Major Advisor. Alternatively, students who have already completed their research may also take BIOEN 4200 concomitantly with Senior Project class I (BIOEN 4201).
