An undergraduate student at UNIST must major two specialties (tracks) during their study. Students select their specialties after their freshmen year. Students seeking particular track as their specialty should take 27 credits during their study. "SLS offers 2 specialties for undergraduate students: Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering"
Biological Sciences
Ground-breaking advances in biological sciences such as sequencing of the human genome and the development of innovative therapies in cancer and age-related diseases highlight the potential of biological sciences which is leading modern science and industry. The Biological Sciences track aims to produce inquisitive and creative scientific minds that are well equipped with solid fund of knowledge on modern biomedical science from molecular and cell biology to human anatomy and physiology. Research activities in the Biological Sciences track at UNIST are focused on cancer biology, metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases, and genomic integrity.

Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical engineering (BME) aims to enhance human health and well-being by solving medical and biological problems with advanced engineering principles and methods. With a vision for future healthcare system, from health monitoring to disease diagnostics and therapeutics, we aspire to nurture creative and skilled global leaders through world-class interdisciplinary research and educational programs. Our competitive research programs include biomedical devices (biochip and microfluidics), biomolecular imaging (from single molecule to whole body), tissue and stem cell engineering, genomics, and theoretical biophysics.
