Undergraduate advising

The undergraduate biomedical engineering program at Wayne State has many features that limit its flexibility. However, we strive to work with students to design and develop a complete program of study that meets your educational and professional goals.  We encourage all students to speak early and frequently with the undergraduate student success coordinator and/or a department academic advisor to discuss curriculum options.

Each student has two department academic advisors. The department administrative academic advisor is common to all undergraduate students. Each student additionally has a professional advisor to consult for details specific to their concentrations, or to discuss options in that concentration prior to selection.

(Cohorts beyond 2022 rotate back to the first row, e.g. Class of 2023 advisors are Drs. Zhang, Lam and Kou)

Concentration forms should be filled out in the junior year (by the end of the fall term junior year), before registering for senior year courses, and taken to the appropriate professional advisor for discussion of course selection and signature. Completed forms can be scanned and emailed to undergraduate chair for academic record review and approval, or brought in person for review and approval.
