Learning Outcomes

Students graduating from the Biomedical Engineering Bachelor’s of Science program will be able to…

  • apply knowledge of mathematics; biological, chemical, and physical sciences; and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and medicine.
  • design and conduct laboratory experiments on living systems and their interactions with non living systems, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • design a biomedical device or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints, including economical and ethical constraints.
  • identify, formulate, and solve problems at the interface of engineering and medicine
  • employ the necessary techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for biomedical engineering practice.
  • recognize the need for lifelong learning and demonstration of the ability to learn independently.
  • function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  • demonstrate professional and ethical responsibility.
  • present technical material through professional written reports and oral presentations.
  • recognize economic, social, and global issues and to evaluate the impact that biomedical engineering solutions may have upon society.
  • recognize contemporary issues as they relate to biomedical engineering problems.
