Common questions related to BME at NJIT.
It is recommended that students choose a concentration by the end of their Sophomore year after completing the core BME classes (BME 301, BME 302, BME 303, and BME 304). Students who plan to follow the Pre-Health option should decide earlier to plan for the additional courses required for Health Professional Schools.
If a course becomes closed during registration, you may be placed on a Waitlist. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee registration for the course. It will allow you to monitor your position on the waitlist closely. If you are at the top of the waitlist and a seat becomes available, an email will be sent to notify you. This email will state the instructions and the time window to enroll in the course. You are not automatically enrolled in the course.
Students in good academic standing can take a course at another institution. Before registering for the course, you must submit the Approval for Undergraduate Courses at Another School Form to the Registrar's Office. Many departments require Pre-Approval before you take the course at another institution and this form allows for the pre-approval by the Academic Department offering the equivalent course. For example, if you plan to take MATH 112 over the summer, you must get Pre-Approval from the Math Department before submitting the form to the Registrar.
If you are transferring admission from another institution, undergraduate transfer credit may be awarded at admission time for courses equivalent to those offered by NJIT by having your official transcript sent to NJIT. To find out more about transferring credit from a New Jersey county college, check out New Jersey Transfer.
If you are an NJIT student that has taken a course at another institution, you will need to have this reviewed to determine if it will count toward your NJIT graduation. Please submit the Request for Transfer Credit form with the required documentation to the registrar's office.
A Co-Op is an academic program that provides students an opportunity to gain paid professional work experience before graduation. Students participating in the Co-Op program alternate between academic study and full-time Co-Op employment. It is open to all students who meet the eligibility criteria. You can find more information on eligibility for NCE students here. To find opportunities, students can work with their Career Advisor at Career Development Services, review and apply for positions through Handshake, or network at events such as Career Fairs. It is important to note that the Co-Op Courses ENGR 310 and ENGR 410 are designed to allow students to maintain registration, but they do not count toward degree credits.
Academic minors allow students to broaden their experience in increasing their knowledge in an additional subject area. Students can access the form to declare a minor through Highlander Pipeline. You can find the Policy on Academic Minors and options at this link. Some suggested minors for biomedical engineering students include Applied Mathematics Minor, Applied Statistics Minor, Chemistry Minor, and Mathematical Biology Minor.
