Engineering Concentration Subjects
These four electives define a concentrated area of study in one of the following designated concentrations: Biomedical Engineering, Energy, Environmental Studies, or Materials Process and Design. In all cases, the electives must be chosen with the approval of the student’s advisor and the department. Lists of recommended subjects for each concentration are available from the department. Note that subjects that have been used to satisfy the Foundational Concepts may not also be counted toward the Engineering Concentration.
