Program Educational Objectives
The following program educational objectives have been established.
Graduates of the biomedical engineering program are expected to have:
- Established themselves as practicing professionals in the capacity as policy makers and leaders in government and industry and/or be engaged in advanced study in biomedical engineering or a related field;
- Demonstrated their ability to successfully work both independently and as members of a professional team in the formulation and design of complex engineering systems, as well as displayed knowledge of living, physiological, and biological systems; and function effectively as responsible professionals with effective oral and written communication skills;
- Shown a commitment to lifelong learning through ongoing professional training and development, leadership training, and research opportunities in order to gain a deeper understanding of the social, ethical, and environmental context of changing global conditions.
Students graduating from the Biomedical Engineering program will have acquired the following:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- An ability to apply the engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration for public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- 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
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
