Industrial and Mechanical Engineering

BE in Mechanical Engineering ENPMED track

The School of Engineering offers an Engineering Pre-Med (ENPMED) track as part of all its undergraduate programs.

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.

*While sitting for the MCAT entrance exams does not require candidates to have taken any particular liberal arts course, some questions may require knowledge of psychology and sociology. It is therefore recommended that students in the pre-med track take PSY201 Intro to Psychology and SOC201 Intro to Sociology to increase their chances of passing the MCAT. These courses do not count towards meeting the university requirements of Liberal Arts and Science Curriculum, and thus they will need to be taken above and beyond the required 12 credits of LASC electives.
