Why Rice University?

Well when we were told to research a college of our dreams I didn't want to do U.T Austin or Texas A&M College Station because that was what the majority of people were probably doing. So I came across Rice and it was the 19th ranked school in the nation with a 14% acceptance rate so I saw it was a hard school to just get into which made me want to research the school.

George R. Brown School of Engineering: Bioengineering

I chose this school and department because it was one of the ones I was most interested in bioengineering it is the biological or medical application of engineering principles or engineering equipment- also called biomedical engineering. In my future I hope to do something in the medical field although I am unaware of what it will be. The two organizations that I enjoyed were Rice/Baylor Medical Program and HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America). Rice/Baylor Medical Program selects 10 freshman to pursue 4 year degree at rice then grant admission to Baylor College of Medicine. HOSA connects students to the medical field and develops its members leadership through competition.

Required classes for bioengineering:Biosciences, computational and applied math,chemistry, math, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics.
