Student Outcomes

Biomedical Engineering (BSE)

The student learning outcomes of the Biomedical Engineering program leading to BSE degree are aligned with the student learning outcomes of ABET EAC (a through k) and Program Specific Criteria (PSC), and prepare graduates of the program to attain the program educational objectives.

Student outcomes (a) through (k) are articulated as follows. Graduates will have:

(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

(c) 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

(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g) an ability to communicate effectively

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

(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

Program Specific Criteria are as follows. Graduates will have:

PSC1) an understanding of biology and physiology

PSC2) the capacity to apply advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), science, and engineering to solve the problems at the interface of engineering and biology

PSC3) the ability to make measurements on and interpret data from living systems, addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems
