Biomedical Engineering - Restricted Electives - 2018/2019

1. Engineering Electives

The combination of elective credits required to graduate are noted in the Course Calendar for your specific Cohort. All elective course offerings are subject to a minimum enrollment of 10 students. Courses may be cancelled by the university at any time if enrollment is less than 10. Semester offerings for courses may change without notice. Students should refer to the current Undergraduate Calendar to confirm that the course will be offered in the semester indicated in this program guide. Concerned that the elective prerequisites have changed mid-program? See the Engineering Elective Prerequisite - History of Changes table.

2. Complementary Studies Electives

B.Eng. students must select [2.00] credits (four courses) from the Complementary Studies electives. You must select one course from each of the three sub-lists (CS-1, CS-2 and CS-3). The remaining 0.5 credit can be chosen from any of the three sub-lists. These electives are meant to broaden your knowledge of society, culture, government and the economy so that you may better understand the impact of engineering on society at large.

3. Biomedical Engineering Areas of Interest

Areas of Interest are optional.  Selection of the restricted elective courses available in the BME-1 and BME-2 lists should be based on each student's personal and professional interests.  Students who wish to strengthen their knowledge in a particular area of interest can use the chart below for reference. 

Note:  Not an inclusive list of all options.  See BME-1 List for all electives.
