In addition to adhering to General Education, students must meet the following requirements to receive the B.S. in Bioengineering at UC Merced.

  • In the 4th semester, students who want to pursue emphasis in Biotechnology will need to select ENGR 065 and the course sequence for upper division specified below.
  • In the 4th semester, students who want to pursue emphasis in Biomedical Imaging and Bioinstrumentation will need to select BIOE 060 and the course sequence for upper division specified below.


All students in the School of Engineering, regardless of major, are required to complete all requirements for all majors with a C- or better. (ENGR 091 ENGR 191 CE 001 , and BIOE 001  are the only exceptions, which require a P grade.)

Students in the School of Engineering must repeat a required course after receiving a grade of D+, D, D-, F, Unsatisfactory, or Not Passed, and may do so no more than twice beyond the initial enrollment in the class. Students may repeat a course only one time (for a total of two attempts to earn a C- or better). If students do not complete these requirements, they may take these courses at another institution or petition the school who hosts the course for a third attempt. The third attempt is not guaranteed at UC Merced.

Required Major Preparation in Lower Division [36 Units]


Bioengineering Core [40 Units]


The bioengineering core is designed to give all students a common foundation of core knowledge specific to the discipline.
