Program Educational Objectives
The program educational objectives for the undergraduate biomedical engineering program are that our graduates will:
- Contribute to biomedical and/or related fields, such as other engineering areas, medicine-related areas, business or law, through employment, graduate school (in engineering or life sciences) or professional school (in health care, law or business).
- Effectively facilitate the interaction of multidisciplinary teams.
- Demonstrate leadership in their chosen field.
The student learning outcomes for the undergraduate biomedical engineering program are:
- An ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics
- 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
- 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
