Bioengineering

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Bioengineering prepares students for a variety of careers in the biomedical device industry and for further education in graduate school. The program addresses the bioengineering topics of biomechanics, biotransport, bioinstrumentation, bioelectricity, biosystems, and biomaterials, and the complementary fields of systems and organ physiology. Education in these areas allows application of bioengineering and scientific principles to benefit human health by advancing methods for effective diagnosis and treatment of disease through development of medical devices and technologies.

Current undergraduate students are encouraged to be aware of their own progress toward graduation. To achieve this, students should keep up-to-date a flowchart that is marked for each course with the year/quarter it is completed and the grade received.

Freshmen

If you have satisfied one or more courses by Advance Placement ("AP") from high school, enroll in the next course in the series (e.g. if "AP" credit exempts you from MATH 20A, enroll in MATH 20B).

Freshmen and Transfer Students

Go to https://catalog.ucsd.edu/courses/BENG.html to read the Bioengineering (BENG) departmental course descriptions in the UCSD General Catalog.  Additionally, visit similar sites to review the course descriptions for courses required in your major that are offered by other departments.

If, after reviewing your major's requirements, you have questions and wish to contact Bioengineering Student Affairs academic advisors, do so preferably via the Virtual Advising Center (VAC) or via email request be-uginfo@bioeng.ucsd.edu.
