Biomedical Engineering Minor

The Biomedical Engineering Minor provides NDSU students opportunities in one of today's most in-demand fields. The program builds on the strength of current faculty in the areas of biomedical engineering and biomechanics, allowing graduates to be ready to contribute to the global demand for medical technologies and innovations. It is open to students in a variety of engineering and science disciplines.

Program Goals

  •  Meet the needs of undergraduate engineering students interested in biomedical engineering careers.
  •  Educate and train students through courses and undergraduate research focused on biomedical issues and device development.

Students are required to take at least 21 credits, at least 12 of which must be in addition to the credits applied to their major. A minimum of 8 credits must be taken at NDSU.
