Undergraduate students in Bioengineering at Clemson University.All undergraduate students, including transfer students, enter the General Engineering program in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. After completing this one-year program with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and a grade of C or higher in each course, students can transfer into the bioengineering degree program.

Freshman general-engineering applicant admissions are based on 

  • Class standing
  • Standardized SAT or ACT scores
  • High school curriculum
  • Grades

Transfer students must have

  • completed one year of study
  • obtained a cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0
  • completed all required freshman-level English, science and mathematics courses

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of our undergraduate program are expected three to five years out to:

  • Continue to develop successful technical or professional careers.
  • Continue to learn and to adapt in a world of constantly evolving technology.

Student Outcomes

The Bioengineering Student Outcomes require that graduates receiving the BS BioE have:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies 

Additionally, our program prepares our graduates with experience in:

  1. applying principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, calculus-based physics, mathematics (through differential equations) and statistics
  2. solving bio/biomedical engineering problems, including those associated with the interaction between living and non-living systems
  3. analyzing, modeling, designing, and realizing bio/biomedical engineering devices, systems, components, or processes    making measurements on and interpreting data from living systems
  4. making measurements on and interpreting data from living systems
