Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering - Biomedical
The biomedical option within the electrical engineering degree program allows graduates to pursue a career in the biomedical engineering discipline or to pursue a graduate degree in biomedical engineering. An additional 15 course credit hours beyond the 122 required for the degree will qualify graduates to apply for a post graduate medical degree program. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Graduates are eligible to practice and become licensed professional engineers.
It is highly recommended that all freshmen engineering students purchase a laptop computer. The recommended laptop computer specifications are at: https://www.atu.edu/engineering/specifications.php.
For a detailed policy regarding transfer credit for the Electrical Engineering programs, please see the Electrical Engineering Programs page.
The following curriculum represents the program of study and a suggested sequence for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree with the biomedical engineering option. The student should be aware that not all courses are offered each semester and the ordering of courses is subject to change. In order to minimize scheduling difficulties, each student should schedule a special session with their advisor at the beginning of their junior year to plan the remaining coursework.
Program: Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering

2This program partners the BSEE Biomedical option undergraduate degree with the MSEE degree. A maximum of 12 graduate level credit hours can be counted towards both the BSEE Biomedical option degree in Electrical Engineering and the MSEE degree. Four graduate level courses can be used to replace four upper-division undergraduate courses as follows:
- ELEG 5313 Modern Control Systems can replace ELEG 4313 Modern Control Systems
- ELEG 5113 Digital Signal Processing can replace ELEG 4113 Digital Signal Processing
- ELEG 5153 Communication Systems II can replace ELEG 4153 Communication Systems II
- ELEG 5133 Advanced Digital Design can replace ELEG 4133 Advanced Digital Design
- ELEG 5993 Special Problems in Engineering I can replace ELEG 4993 Special Problems in Engineering
The following courses are not required for the Biomedical Option major; however, they are recommended for application to an advanced medical degree program:
|Semester||Course Number||Course Name||Credits|
|Sophomore Fall||BIOL 3034 Genetics||Genetics*||4|
|Sophomore Spring||CHEM 3264 Mechanistic Organic Chemistry||Mechanistic Organic Chemistry*||4|
|Junior Fall||CHEM 3344 Principles of Biochemistry||Principles of Biochemistry*||4|
|Senior Spring||BIOL 4033 Cell Biology||Cell Biology*||3|
