Nicholas’s Answer

Like I'd assume most departments, gen chem and gen bio should be required . However in my personal experience, I have dealt with more biology than chemistry because of my chosen specialization in bio-mechanics. Different specializations within BME will have different requirements such as tissue and genetic engineering involving more chemistry based courses. It all depends on what you want to do more of.

Shazia’s Answer

Hi! You would need to study both chemistry and biology, which subject is more relevant to you will depend on your specialization I have a masters in biomedical sciences, and that had more biology than chem.

Good luck!

G. Mark’s Answer

Biomedical engineering, on average, requires equal amounts of both, and further classes you take would depend on your choice. I would recommend more engineering classes than are absolutely required, as well, simply because of the flexibility of knowledge you can draw upon for the engineering aspects of the field.
