It is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The education objectives of the Biomedical Engineering program are to prepare graduates:

  1. to be employed in careers of useful service to society, including scientific and technical areas within medicine, industry, and health care delivery;
  2. to demonstrate the ability to apply the basic principles of engineering and science, as well as problem solving skills and critical thinking, to a broad spectrum of biomedical engineering problems;
  3. to demonstrate their ability to work in teams, and to effectively communicate and understand the broad social, ethical, economic and environmental consequences of their lifelong education.

The student outcomes of this program are the (a) - (k) Student Outcomes as defined by the ABET Criteria for Accrediting Engineering Programs. The Biomedical Engineering concentration shares much of the core with the other engineering programs, but is structured to include more courses in biology and chemistry, and a somewhat different emphasis in mathematics.

Student Goals

Students in this concentration will:

  • Gain fluency in contemporary biology
  • Be able to apply the tools of an engineer (the ability to quantify, synthesize, and integrate) to living systems and other subject matter in biology
  • Apply problem solving skills and critical thinking to a broad spectrum of biomedical engineering problems
  • Work collaboratively
  • Communicate effectively
  • Engage in a capstone experience focusing on biomedical engineering, design, research and modeling
