A.B. in engineering at Brown

<p>If I did an A.B. in engineering , would I be able to concentrate in Biomedical engineering? I’m considering the A.B. because I’m not interested in engineering professionally - I’m going to be a premed, hopefully in PLME and I want to have a lot of room to choose courses that interest me, while still being able to acquire a background in BME. I’m concerned that with the ScB in BME, I would lose some flexibility to choose courses that interest me, because the degree has to meet ABET standards. Thanks.</p>

<p>I'm not an engineering concentrator, so all my information comes from the school's undergraduate programs guide. Someone else better informed may want to jump in.</p>

<p>From the looks of it, there isn't an AB program in BME per se. There is, however, a general AB program in engineering, which is relatively flexible in terms of course requirements. There isn't a fixed set of courses you have to take; instead you develop your own program in consultation with the concentration advisor. You are probably free to explore your interest in BME within such a framework.</p>
