The undergraduate degree program in Biomedical Engineering is diverse and fascinating. I proudly remember walking out of a Medical Sciences classroom where I took classes with Medical students, and heading to my next class at the Electronics Laboratory, thus completely changing my mind’s focus.

María Patricia Acosta

I was a Prepa UDEM student and in an event promoting the undergraduate degree programs I discovered Biomedical Engineering. It was there that I decided to pursue that program. Throughout the semesters, I took advantage of the fact that my house was a long way away from the University and I had to stay at the campus for most of the day to take some curricular courses in sports and dance.
