What engineering professions are open to me without Bio?

  1. Feb 16, 2014 #1
    My school had us complete course selection in two days so I made the rash decision of excluding biology. What engineering professions will this bar me from?

    Note: I will be taking French, Graphic design, Chemistry, Functions, Advanced functions and Physics. Is this a good group of courses for engineering?

    I don't know if you are talking high school or freshman college courses, I assume high school, but if you have any leaning at all toward civil, electrical, mechanical, chemical, aeronautical, nuclear , or structural engineering, you won't need biology. It would be helpful if you were interested in say biochemical or biomedical engineering, or environmental sciences, as examples, but otherwise, it is not necessary. Don't forget calculus!
