Engineering Premed Track
The School of Engineering offers an Engineering Pre-Med (ENPMED) track as part of all its undergraduate programs (starting Spring 2022).
The fast advancements in the medical and health professions has exerted additional pressure on practitioners to acquire a better understanding of the underlying technologies. Due to the growing use of technologies for medicine and health, there is a growing interest among students who pursue medical degrees and health related degrees, to acquire a strong engineering background prior to joining medical and health-related professions. This need presents an opportunity for the SOE to bridge this gap by providing students with an option of acquiring a BE in engineering with a PreMed track, referred to herein as Engineering PreMED (ENPMED). ENPMED credits are integrated within each curriculum based on a different mix of credits depending on each degree program requirements.
The offered ENPMED track provides an opportunity for engineering students to apply to Medical School and pursue an MD degree, or pursue graduate studies in the biomedical and health related fields, or work in their chosen major after receiving their Bachelor of Engineering degree.
The following seven ENPMED tracks are currently offered:
- BE in Civil Engineering ENPMED track
- BE in Computer Engineering ENPMED track
- BE in Electrical Engineering ENPMED track
- BE in Industrial Engineering ENPMED track
- BE in Mechanical Engineering ENPMED track
- BE in Mechatronics Engineering ENPMED track
- BE in Petroleum Engineering ENPMED track
For more information about the ENPMED track course requirements, please contact the department that is responsible for your major.
