Undergraduate NEWS:


BENG 501 – Undergraduate students registering for BENG 501 in Fall 2019 need an active research project with a research mentor. Changes for BAM in Data Analytics – Please take BENG 520 instead of BENG 501 or have your research project approved by the new BAM Data Analytics Director. Email me if you have questions.

BENG 421/521Tissue Engineering has been rescheduled to MWF at 8:30 am-9:20 am. We have noticed that the registration for our BIOE Technical Electives have been low. Many of the classes will give you a prerequisite error and shouldn’t. So if you can’t register for a Bioengineering class other than the ones listed below please let me know. Even after May 21st, they may give you a prerequisite error due to the new catalog entries.

Controls and Overrides: The following BENG classes for Fall 2019 have controls:

BENG 214, 230, BENG 320, BENG 330/331, BENG 360, BENG 370/371, BENG 420, BENG 391. The controls will be lifted on May 21st at 10 am.

Students who will take BENG 492 in fall 2019 or spring 2020, please email me for an override of BENG 391 NOW (which replaces BENG 491). Students who are graduating in fall and still need BENG 420 please email me as well for an override.

MATH 203 BIOE section: Is mandatory and needs an override from me. Please email [log in to unmask] for an override.
