Learn fundamental skills and techniques in both biomedical engineering and chosen core discipline. There are eight engineering disciplines to choose from (Civil, Chemical, Electrical, Engineering Physics, Materials, Mechanical, Mechatronics, and Software). The admissions into one of these engineering disciplines will be based off of first year academic performance and the availability of space in the discipline.
