Are you thinking about declaring biomedical engineering as your major?
Here are few steps that you should take before making your declaration.
- Unless your SAGES First Seminar advisor is an engineer professor, it is better to declare BME now and then switch to a different major in a semester or two. The engineering curriculum is the most constrained of all CWRU majors. The faculty in CSE will probably give you better advice on how to utlize open slots from AP or transfer credits, how to navigate a pre-med curriculum within a CSE major, and how to structure your extracurricular activities to meet your career goals.
- Review the four differnet specialization tracks that are available. A list can be found on the left column of this page or you can click here to the BME speciality concentrations page. It is important to pick a track so that you receive an advisor for that specific track. Also, there are unique classes for each track in the sophomore year that serve as pre-requisites for later courses in each sequence. You may change your sequence at any point if you decide that you wish to do something else but there will likely be a bit of course juggling necessary to accomodate the needed pre-requisites.
- You may begin declaring your major middle of the fall semester of your first year at Case.
- To declare BME as a major, you can pick up a declaration form from the UG Programs Coordinator, Gena Richmann, in the BME Department, Wickenden Building, Room 311, Carol Adrine in the BME Department, Wickenden Building, Room 310, or from the Office of Undergraduate Studies, Sears Building, Third Floor.
- Return the form to Gena Richmann or Brian Wollenzier
