Undergraduate Programs

**The information below differs from the print version of the CSULB Catalog. EE 360 is now properly listed in upper division requirements, replacing EE 460 after a course number change. Please browse here for a full list of differences between the print and online catalog. (08/18/11)**

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Option in Biomedical and Clinical Engineering (code EE__BS02) (133 units)

The Department of Electrical Engineering administers an option in Biomedical and Clinical Engineering that allows the student to acquire substantive competence in biomedical engineering and biology. The program builds upon a strong base of biology, mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering science to develop a clinically oriented biomedical engineer to serve medical and industrial needs. It includes a core of standard electrical engineering courses as well as courses and laboratories in biomedical engineering, anatomy, physiology and biology. Elective units are available in the senior year to explore individual areas of interest.

Students planning to attend medical, dental or other health professional or graduate schools in Biomedical Engineering may select courses in Chemistry and/or Biology with the approval of the Biomedical Engineering advisor.

Laboratory facilities in the field of biomedical engineering are available in the engineering buildings; and laboratory facilities for anatomy and physiology are available on campus. Computer systems are available to simulate biological systems and to collect, process and display physiological data.

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade C or better must be achieved in MATH 122 within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade C or better must be achieved in MATH 123 and PHYS 151 within one calendar year.
