Students who graduate with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering should be able to …
- apply knowledge of mathematics, biology, physiology, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology.
- design and conduct laboratory experiments, including those that involve living systems, as well as to analyze and interpret data to address problems associated with biological systems and the interface between biological systems and non-living materials and systems.
- design a biomedical device or process to meet desired needs.
- work in multi-functional teams.
- identify, formulate, and solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology.
- demonstrate professional and ethical responsibility.
- present technical material through written reports containing analyses and conclusions and oral presentations accompanied by visual aids.
- recognize economic, political, environmental, global, and social issues and to evaluate the impact that biomedical engineering solutions may have upon these issues.
