Preparation for Bioengineering

High School Preparation

A strong preparation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry is strongly recommended. For more information on suggested strengths, interests and preparation, see the page on Bioengineering at the Admissions Office.

Admissions

Transfer Students

The Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering cooperates with the community colleges in Washington to minimize problems associated with transfer. Inquiries are welcome. A strong preparation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry is strongly recommended prior to transfer to minimize the time required at Washington State University to complete the bachelor’s degree requirements. Students who have taken statics, differential equations and circuits at their previous institution will be able to proceed through the curriculum in a timely manner.  Transfer students are also encouraged to take ChE 201 (Chemical Process Principles and Calculations) during summer session to facilitate early certification into the program.

The requirements for direct entry into chemical engineering or bioengineering programs upon transfer are the same as listed for certification. Transfer student applications will be handled by the Admissions Office and sent to the school so that students do not need to make a separate application to the school. Questions about transfer course equivalencies can be addressed through the Office of Admissions (http://admission.wsu.edu/transfer/) for general education courses, or through the Voiland School Academic Coordinator (mgreaney@wsu.edu) for bioengineering requirements).
