Students matriculate as sophomores to the Bachelor of Science Program in the Department of Bioengineering in two ways:

  1. Any Freshman in the Swanson School of Engineering (SSoE) in good academic standing (cumulative GPA ≥ 2.00) who has completed the Freshman Engineering Program courses MATH 0220 and MATH 0230 (Analytical Geometry and Calculus 1 & 2), PHYS 0174 and PHYS 0175 (Basic Physics for Science and Engineering 1 & 2), CHEM 0960 and CHEM 0970 (General Chemistry for Engineers 1 & 2), ENGR 0011 (Introduction to Engineering Analysis), and ENGR 0012 (Introduction to Engineering Computing), or the honors versions of those courses, can elect to matriculate to the Department of Bioengineering as a sophomore;
  2. Students seeking to transfer to the Department of Bioengineering from any program within the University of Pittsburgh (e.g., Arts & Sciences or another SSoE department), any branch campus of the University of Pittsburgh, or any other two-year or four-year college or university must have completed physics, chemistry, and math equivalent to the Freshman Program and have a GPA ≥ 3.50 at the time of application and transfer into the Department of Bioengineering.
