Minor in Biomedical Engineering

A minor in Biomedical Engineering is suitable for students wishing to apply their knowledge of engineering principles to medical and biological problems. This minor is a collaboration between the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology and the WellStar College of Health and Human Services. Students need to complete 15 credit hours in this minor program. The student must earn a ‘C’ or better in all courses for the minor. 

All upper-level engineering courses require Engineering Standing.   

Non-engineering students who desire to enroll in upper-level engineering courses to complete a minor or a dual major must have the applicable course prerequisites and a 2.7GPA in the following courses:

  • ENGL 1101 Composition I 
  • ENGL 1102 Composition II 
  • PHYS 2211 Principles of Physics I & PHYS 2211L Principles of Physics Laboratory I 
  • CHEM 1211 Principles of Chemistry I  & CHEM 1211L Principles of Chemistry Laboratory I 
  • PHYS 2212 Principles of Physics II & PHYS 2212L Principles of Physics Laboratory II 
  • MATH 1190 Calculus I 
  • MATH 2202 Calculus II 

12 additional credits from courses in the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology or with prefixes CHEM, CS, CSE, IT, MATH, PHYS, or STAT.
