New Undergraduate Curriculum in Biomedical Engineering

<p>All incoming BME freshman will follow this new curriculum... much more biology based.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>These changes will keep Hopkins at the top of BME for a long time to come.</p>

<p>If it's more biology-based, then that means it's also less engineering based. Why do you think that would keep them at the top for a long time? I always thought that the "engineering" part of BME was more important for rankings than the "biomedical" part.</p>

<p>Nevertheless, I think Hopkins is doing the right thing. They are much stronger in biology and medicine than engineering, in which they are "above average" at best (among top schools).</p>

<p>Meaning the engineering will be more biology based ie more computational biology... like modeling... biological instrumentation... mri... genetic and tissue engineering... will still learn engineering... but just how they apply to biomedical engineering</p>

<p>biomed is about applying engineering to medicine and biology to solve probs depending on respective disciplines (the ones the new prog is broken up into) i still think it has a proper mix of bio, med, and eng...i am going into it for the eng and not medicine, and i am extremely happy w/ the prog</p>

<p>any1 here have an idea of how many credits you need to graduate AND how many credits on avg a BME student has when they do graduate</p>

<p>you need 126 credits to graduate and the average bme has about 130</p>

<p>awesome thanks</p>
