The BMC program is designed for students who have an interest in using advanced computational techniques to address questions in biology and medicine. There are four choices of focus areas: Two of the tracks (Informatics and Simulation) place a bit more emphasis on the computational aspects of the discipline, while the other two (Cellular/Molecular and Organs/Organ Systems) provide more depth in biology. For detailed course lists follow the link to Biomedical Computation Program Requirements on right. Students take courses in calculus,statistics, chemistry, biology (or HUMBIO), Mechanics, and basic programming to gain a solid foundation for the more advanced core and depth courses.
Class of '18
Science, Technology, and Society
Provides students with an interdisciplinary framework through which to understand the complex interactions of science, technology and the social world.
Aeronautics and Astronautics
The Engineering Physics program is designed for students who have an interest in and an aptitude for both engineering and physics. Students begin with a year of mathematics and calculus-based physics, and then proceed to depth courses in physics and engineering, as well as elective courses in a selected specialty area (Aerospace Physics, Biophysics, Computational Science, Electromechanical System Design, Energy Systems, Materials Science, Photonics, or Renewable Energy).
Students acquire in-depth knowledge of the principles of chemistry, the methodologies necessary to solve complex problems, and the ability to articulate their ideas effectively to the scientific community.
