Bioengineering

Apply

The bioengineering associate degree is a transfer program which meets a majority of the first and second year baccalaureate requirements for math, chemistry, biology and physics as well as engineering principles which are the foundation of a bioengineering program of study. The transfer program has been developed in consultation with the University of New Hampshire’s College of Engineering and Physical Sciences to align program requirements for transfer purposes. The core courses in the program are also common to most undergraduate bioengineering programs.

This program improves upon the prior Liberal Arts concentration degree in the following ways:

  1. Students may transfer with true Junior status upon completion of this degree, subject to GPA requirements
  2. Students who place into 100-level or developmental mathematics may still complete the program but will require up to ten (10) additional math credits
  3. General education requirements do not exceed discovery program requirements at the University of New Hampshire with careful choice of courses

Requirements

  1. Basic computer skills including software such as web browsers, office applications
  2. Good manual dexterity; adequate (basic) keyboarding skills
  3. Vision for reading on computer screen and printed material
  4. Critical thinking ability
  5. Ability to work independently as well as in small groups
  6. Be an effective communicator verbally, as in an office/work environment and write legibly

Transfer Credit Policy: In addition to Great Bay transfer credit policies, transfer of courses in the Bioengineering program that are designated MAJOR courses more than 10 years old will be evaluated by the program coordinator on an individual basis.
