Choosing a minor with a BME degree

Hello, I was wondering what minor would be best fitted for BioMedical Engineering. I am very unsure about this and open to all ideas. Thank you! :)

Hi Sony,

Depending on your program, you probably don't need a minor.  This would be a good question for your academic advisor, but usually a minor is only added if there is something you really want to get extra training in without getting a full degree.  If you really want to add a minor you might consider one of the traditional engineering areas such as mechanical, electrical or chemical engineering.  Since BME is a already a very broad discipline, focusing on one area like that can improve your ability to move outside of the biomedical field if you choose, and can help you focus your talents in a specific direction.
