Program Mission

We prepare our graduates to respond to the needs and challenges of our ever-changing world and provide them the knowledge, skills, ethics, creativity and critical thinking skills necessary for professional competence and life-long learning.

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the program are well prepared for taking the Fundamentals of Engineering examination. Established in 1972, the Biomedical Engineering Department remains one of the oldest, largest and strongest such programs in the United States.

Biomedical Engineering Program Educational Objectives (adopted September 29, 2000, revised May 2, 2008)

BIENOb1 (Careers): Graduates of the program will find employment as biomedical engineers or be admitted for continued study in engineering, science, business, medicine, or other professional programs.

BIENOb2 (Skills): Graduates of the program will apply the skills obtained from the program to biomedical or other multidisciplinary fields.

BIENOb3 (Professionalism): Graduates of the program will communicate effectively, undertake professional responsibilities, and function effectively as members and leaders of multi-disciplinary teams.

BIENOb4 (Life-Long Learning): Graduates of the program will continue to develop their knowledge and skills throughout their careers.

The Biomedical Engineering program educational objectives are directly linked to the university’s fundamental mission of maintaining “as its highest priority, the education of its students” and “preparing students to achieve their goals.” BIENOb1 refers to the way that the graduate’s solid engineering and science foundation will serve the students in a variety of careers. We expect that most of our students will work in a field of engineering or medicine, but we also know that the background they obtain from our program will serve them if they choose another career path. BIENOb2 states that our students are expected to contribute professionally upon graduation. This objective has a basis in the University’s mission to “provide opportunities for interaction between students and the larger business and civic community,” to ‘integrate advanced technology into teaching and learning,” and to provide students with “advanced technological skills.” It also relates to the stated need to “see research and teaching as intertwined” by fostering the hands-on experiences that come from the inclusion of undergraduates in our research laboratories. BIENOb3 states that we expect our graduates not only to be productive in the biomedical community but also to flourish and to “fulfill community and civic obligations,” as stated in the University’s mission. BIENOb4 enables students to lay the seeds for their continued professional growth and is aligned with the university mission to “regard learning as a lifelong process.”
