Undergraduate Curriculum

UNIST students takes general courses during their freshman year and can apply to the BME undergraduate program at the end of their 1st year. Take a course ‘BME to change the world (UNI10701)’ opened for UNIST freshmen. You will see why you must apply for BME undergraduate program!

UNIST BME undergraduate courses begins with core engineering coursework including Engineering Mathematics and Engineering Physiology, followed by cornerstone courses in biomedical fundamentals and applications as well as Biomedical Instrumentation Laboratory and Capstone project which provide strong ground to learn problem-solving, design, and communication skills.

It is highly recommended to take Undergraduate Internship Program as part of your curriculum. You can work for research laboratories, companies and receive academic credits. Through the internship experience, you can participate research projects and learn in-depth knowledge, mentoring.

Suggested course examples per six concentration areas are as shown below;

Academic advisors and Mentoring
We believe that close interaction between students and BME faculty advisor is key to success of BME students. Academic advisors help students make important decisions including choosing classes, engaging in research opportunities and discussing career opportunities. All the BME students are assigned BME faculty advisors as they enter the department. We highly encourage students to meet BME faculty advisors each semester. In addition, Ms. Ryu, an academic affairs manager handles the administrative aspects of student advising such as registration and graduation. Resources about information on policies, registration, validation, graduation and so on.
