Biomedical Engineering, BSBME

Program Educational Objectives
The mission of the Biomedical Engineering Department is to promote learning and discovery that integrates engineering and life sciences for the advancement of human health. To fulfill this mission at the undergraduate level, we have identified the overarching objective to provide educational opportunities for students to creatively integrate engineering and life sciences so that graduates can successfully pursue the following:

  1. Advanced study leading to research or professional practice in biomedical engineering
  2. Advanced study leading to research or professional practice in health care
  3. Careers in biomedical engineering industries or related technical and professional fields

Student Outcomes:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics          
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make  informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives  
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions   
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies

Program Specific Student Outcomes:

  1. Applying principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, calculus-based physics, mathematics (through differential equations) and statistics
  2. Solving bio/biomedical engineering problems, including those associated with the interaction between living and non-living systems
  3. Analyzing, modeling, designing and realizing bio-biomedical engineering devices, systems, components or processes
  4. Making measurements on and interpreting data from living systems
