Program Educational Objectives

Biomedical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEO’s) are that our alumni:

  • will be engaged in professional practice as biomedical engineers and/or biomedical scientists in occupational settings involving human health and well-being (PEO 1),
  • will advance in their professional careers (PEO 2), and
  • will engage in professional development, or post-graduate education, to continuing their self-development in biomedical engineering or other related fields (PEO 3)

Biomedical Engineering Student Outcomes

The BME Student Outcomes are identical to the EAC Outcomes (a)-(k). They require that our graduate will demonstrate:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  4. an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. an ability to communicate effectively.
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
