Chair: Timothy M. Wick
Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and technology to the solution of problems in the life sciences and medicine. Graduates create and apply knowledge at the interface of life sciences and engineering for the benefit of society. The BME undergraduate program prepares graduates to be immediately productive and able to adapt to a rapidly changing environment. The curriculum includes basic engineering core courses, mathematics, calculus-based physics, biology and chemistry, fine arts, humanities, history, social and behavioral sciences, as well as biomedical engineering core courses and electives. The curriculum culminates in a capstone design experience where interdisciplinary teams apply knowledge to solve real-world engineering problems. A bachelor’s degree in BME from UAB provides a foundation in medical devices, biomedical implants, biomaterials, and biomedical instrumentation to compete in an increasingly technical medical field, as well as preparing students for graduate or professional school.
The Biomedical Engineering program is currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org
Freshmen with an ACT score of 28 or higher (or SAT equivalent) and a high school GPA of 3.20 or higher may be admitted directly to the Biomedical Engineering program. All other freshmen and transfer students who meet the University requirements for unconditional admission as a degree seeking student (as stated in the current UAB Undergraduate Catalog) and wish to major in engineering are admitted as pre-engineering students and could be designated as Pre-Biomedical Engineering.
In order to advance from pre-engineering to Biomedical Engineering, students must meet all of the following minimum requirements:
- Sophomore standing (completion of at least 32 hours)
- Completion (C or better) of MA 125 Calculus I and MA 126 Calculus II
- Completion (C or better) of two required science courses with appropriate labs
- Completion of EGR 110 and EGR 111 Introduction to Engineering I and II (or EGR 200)
- Completion of ME 102 Engineering Graphics
- An institutional (UAB) GPA of 3.20 (transfer students must also have an overall GPA of 3.20)
Students can transfer into Biomedical Engineering from other programs within UAB once the minimum requirements to advance stated above have been met. Transfer students from other institutions (universities, colleges, junior colleges, community colleges) receive a Pre-Engineering designation for a minimum of one semester following admission to UAB, then are admitted to their chosen department upon completion of the minimum requirements listed above. Students admitted as degree-seeking post baccalaureate, however, will be considered on an individual basis.
BME students must maintain an institutional (UAB) GPA of at least 3.00 or higher. Students who do not meet this requirement will be put on BME probation for one term, during which time the student must raise their institutional GPA above 3.00. If at the end of the probation term, the institutional (UAB) GPA is not above 3.00 the student will be reclassified as PEGR (Pre-General Engineering). To be re-admitted to the BME program, the student must have an institutional (UAB) GPA of at least 3.20 and make a formal application for readmission.
BME students must have an institutional (UAB) GPA of at least 3.00 and have completed at least 64 hours of course work applicable to their degree before they may register for 300-level and 400-level BME courses. BME students must also have an institutional (UAB) GPA of 3.00 or higher and have earned a grade of C or better in all BME courses to graduate.
In addition to fulfilling course prerequisites, non-BME students or students seeking a BME minor who wish to enroll in 300-level and 400-level BME courses must have an institutional (UAB) GPA of 3.00 as well as permission of the BME Undergraduate Advisor. Non-BME majors may not enroll in BME 423, BME 498, or BME 499. In addition a minimum overall GPA of 3.00 is required for all engineering course work applied to a BME minor. Transfer students seeking a BME minor must take at least nine (9) semester hours and earn a minimum GPA of 3.00 in UAB engineering courses attempted before enrolling in BME courses.
Highly qualified undergraduate students may be admitted to the BME Honors Program, which offers students an opportunity to develop research skills while earning graduate credit towards a Masters of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering (MSBME). Acceptance into the BME Honors program requires that students complete at least 32 hours (including MA 227 Calculus III or EGR 265 Math Tools for Engineering Problem Solving), with at least an earned 3.4 GPA in those courses. To graduate with BME Honors, students must complete the BME undergraduate curriculum plus additional seminar courses and at least 6 credits of Honors Research, culminating in a written thesis and public defense. Students who successfully complete the program will receive an Honors certificate at the UAB Honors Convocation Recognition and their transcript will read “Graduation with Honors in Biomedical Engineering."Back To Top
