Outcomes

Based on discussions with stake holders and national expectations, the BME Undergraduate Program is designed to produce graduates who are able to:

(a)  apply knowledge of math, science, and engineering

(b)  design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data from those experiments

(c)  design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints

(d)  function on multidisciplinary teams

(e)  identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

(f)  demonstrate an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g)  communicate effectively

(h)  understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

(i)  recognize the need for and ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) demonstrate a knowledge of contemporary issues

(k)  use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

(bme1)  apply principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, calculus-based physics, mathematics (through differential equations), and statistics

(bme2)  solve biomedical engineering problems, including those associated with the interaction between living and non-living systems

(bme3)  analyze, model, design, and realize biomedical engineering devices, systems, components, or processes

(bme4)  make measurements on and interpret data from living systems

 

The BME curriculum builds throughout the four years -- introducing students to the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to meet these outcomes and then revisiting the information in later courses.
