Notes:

  • Core classes listed in italics are sample options; the order of these could be interchanged.

  • Students still need 2 TLA courses at SHU (Humanities & Natural Science).

  • Chemistry department will consider waiving the CH 395 Research Project in place of an Introduction to Engineering Analysis course (to be developed) or other applied chemistry elective relevant to the student’s future major (e.g. Materials Science for Engineers, to be developed).

  • Credits remaining to complete Biomedical Engineering degree upon arrival at RPI: 63 credits.
