The degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science is conferred on all students who complete this program. Students whose major concentration is applied mathematics, applied physics, astrophysics, biochemistry, biology, biopsychology, chemical physics, chemistry, cognitive and brain Sciences, computer science, engineering psychology, environmental studies (as second major only), geological sciences, geology, mathematics, and physics are eligible to receive a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. Those majoring in psychology, psychology/clinical and quantitative economics may choose to receive the degree of Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts at the time they complete their degree sheet. Students in all other majors will receive a Bachelor of Arts degree. Students whose multiple majors make them eligible for either a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree may choose between the two when completing their degree sheet. The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering is intended to prepare students to continue with graduate study either in biomedical engineering or medicine, or to enter professional practice as a bioengineer or designer of biomedical systems. The curriculum includes intensive instruction in math, sciences and engineering disciplines, design and research projects, and biomedical engineering specific courses, culminating in a year-long senior capstone project. The main course concentration in BME is open to all students that apply and includes a design specific course. As an alternative option to this traditional concentration elective courses, the program also offers a set of research and design concentration elective courses. Enrollment in this set of elective courses (BME 3-6) is limited to a maximum of 16 students. If more than 16 students register for BME 3, the first course in the series, only the 16 students with the highest cumulative GPA in their freshman year at Tufts will be enrolled, while the remaining students would take the main course concentration option. The program leading to the BSBME degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Tufts Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering for engineering students that combines intensive training in research methods, techniques, and practical skills with a solid science and engineering curriculum that provides breadth and depth in the field. A key aspect of biomedical engineering is its interdisciplinary nature; introductory courses in mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics, and foundation/concentration courses build the basis for creating the synergy among these disciplines that is required in the practice of biomedical engineering.
