Biological Systems Engineering Curriculum

133 total credit hours are required for graduation with a B.S. in Biological Systems Engineering. For more detail on the department courses listed below, consult the on-line version of the Undergraduate Bulletin BSEN course specifics.

Although the curriculum can be completed in eight semesters, many students take longer in order to participate in internships and co-op assignments with companies, international exchange studies, and part-time research projects in the department. These opportunities give BSEN students practical, hands-on experience to learn about careers in engineering.
