The undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering is built upon a rigorous engineering science foundation that is, in turn, based upon a broad curriculum of natural sciences, mathematics, electives in humanities and social sciences, and design. Although students are encouraged to concentrate their professional electives in a sub-field of interest in biomedical engineering (e.g., biomechanics, bioelectronics, bioelectricity, biomaterials, or tissue engineering) or medical sciences (for pre-med students), there are no formal "tracks" within the sequence. The undergraduate curriculum is designed primarily to prepare our undergraduates for advanced study.
More than two-thirds of our BSE graduates continue on to graduate or professional training after graduation from Tulane. Our philosophy of 'rigorous breadth' in biomedical engineering can best be characterized by the undergraduate curriculum described in the Student Handbook.
