To see more about what you will learn in this program, visit the Learning Outcomes website!

The minor in Tissue Engineering is intended to provide graduates with the knowledge base and practical skills that will prepare them to quickly contribute to research and manufacturing of devices designed for repair and replacement of tissues and organs. Interested students should contact the BME Student Services Coordinator for information and application materials.

Admissions and Certification of Minor

The BME staff will hold primary responsibility for administration of the Minor in Tissue Engineering. Information about the minor and application materials will be handled by the BME student services coordinator. BME faculty members will serve as advisors for the minor. To be admitted to the program, a student must have a GPA of at least 2.0. Application for admission to any University minor program is now available via MyPack Portal.
