Minor in Computational Neuroscience

Computational neuroscience is becoming an important tool for neuroscientists to understand how complex brain circuits work, for example, the causes of post-traumatic stress disorder. This intersection of engineering and neuroscience allows for great advances in health care, manufacturing and communication.

For this interdisciplinary minor, all students will take BIO SC/ECE 4580 – Computational Neuroscience, and other courses will vary depending on major.

  • The minor  is administered by both the colleges of Arts & Science and Engineering.
  • Any student whose home department is in these colleges may apply.
  • Students can apply for the minor any time, but it’s typically done after freshman year.
