Bioengineering majors follow the engineering curriculum during their first semester with two primary exceptions. Bioengineering majors will enroll in BIOE 001 - Introduction to Bioengineering 1: Philosophy to Practice (1 credit) in place of ENGR 005 and enroll in CHM 030 & ENGR 010 during the first semester (i.e. PHY 011 & 012 is taken during the second semester). Therefore, the first semester schedule for bioengineering students will include BIOE 001, CHM 030**, ENGR 010, a calculus course, and an English course. Students are encouraged to review the information on the engineering page of this website for more details regarding the additional first semester engineering requirements. 

**CHM 040 may be taken as an alternative to CHM 030 and is intended for students considering a major in chemistry or biochemistry, or in one of the related science or engineering fields that require a strong background in chemistry (please review additional details regarding Chemistry placement).
