Bioelectrical Engineering Minor

A minor in Bioelectrical Engineering may be earned by a student in any University bachelor’s degree program. This minor provides students with an opportunity to integrate physiology and biological sciences with engineering aspects in signal measurement and processing. To qualify for a Minor in Bioelectrical Engineering, students must complete a minimum of 21 credits as described below with a minimum grade of C- in each course.

Course Requirements
(1) All students must complete the following three courses:
BISC 207 (a) Introductory Biology I - (4 credits) (Seats reserved for ECE students during spring semester only)

MATH 242 Analytic Geometry and Calculus B - (4 credits)
PHYS 202(b) Introductory Physics II - (4 credits)
PHYS 208(b) Introductory Physics II - (4 credits)

(2) All students must complete one of the following courses:
BISC 306 General Physiology - (3 credits)
BMEG 401 Systems Physiology I - (3 credits)
ELEG 471 Mathematical Physiology - (3 credits)

(3) All students must complete two of the following courses(c):
ELEG 475 Image Processing with Biomedical Applns - (3 credits)

ELEG 478 Introduction to Nano and Biophotonics - (3 credits)
ELEG 479 Introduction to Medical Imaging Systems - (3 credits)

ELEG 676 Bioinformatics and Biosystems Analysis I - (3 credits)
ELEG 680 Immunology for Engineers - (3 credits)
BISC 627 Neuroscience II - (3 credits)

BMEG 330 Biomedical Instrumentation - (3 credits)
KAAP 688 Electromyographic Kinesiology - (3 credits)

(a) BISC 208 cannot be substituted for BISC 207.
(b) It is understood that PHYS 201/207 is taken before PHYS 202/208.
(c) The listed 400 and 600-level courses are open to any student who has completed requirements (1) and (2) and the necessary prerequisites (or obtained permission of instructor).

Further inquiries about the Bioelectrical Engineering Minor can be made to Professor Michael Haney at 831-4299 or



The minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) requires EITHER the successful completion of 15 credits in Computer or Electrical Engineering courses OR the successful completion of 12 credits in Computer or Electrical Engineering courses and the successful completion of MATH 242, CISC 181 or PHYS 208.

To see a list of approved courses, please view Bachelor of Electrical Engineering or Bachelor of Computer Engineering.


Students pursuing the minor can get advice from the ECE office or from the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.

The minor is not available to students majoring in Electrical Engineering (ELEG) or Computer Engineering (CPEG).

Accomplishment of a minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering has many advantages but it must be understood that meeting the requirements for a minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering without fulfilling the remaining requirements for an accredited engineering degree does not provide the breadth and depth of knowledge required of an electrical or a computer engineer.

For students in other majors, such as Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or Computer Science, a minor in ECE will help expand their knowledge and capabilities and make them more desirable employees in many jobs.
