Pre-Med Option

Request Info

Our Department offers a pre-medical option that allows motivated students to obtain the rigorous education of a bachelors degree in computer engineering while simultaneously completing the basic science requirements necessary for applying to medical or dental school. Much of the excitement in engineering involves applications of electrical and computer engineering to problems in health, such as the development of nano-scale biosensors, or the signal processing analysis of DNA sequences or the development and/or use of new hardware and software tools to better serve both medical professionals and patients. With the rapid advancement and application of technology in the medical field, the pre-med option ensures that students learn and understand the fundamentals of Electrical and Computer Engineering while preparing them for entry into either medical school, advanced graduate study, or industry.
