Founded in 1969 as a pioneer in the field, the Case Department of Biomedical Engineering still remains a leader in BME education in research. Our undergraduate program is currently ranked 7th in the nation according to the 2006 US News & World Report. Please see the welcome message from our department chairman for more information about the department.
The faculty has put together a guide full of tips for writing letters of recommendation. Please consult the guide before asking for letters.
We encourage you to contact our department while you are considering how Biomedical Engineering at Case is right for you.

List of companies that have hired our students directly after graduation. The list was generated from student reports from 2005-2009, and will continually be updated.
This is what we expect from our alums 3-6 years after completing their Case Western Reserve Univ BME program.
- Our graduates will successfully enter and complete post baccalaureate advanced degree programs, including those in biomedical engineering
- Our graduates will obtain jobs in the biomedical arena and advance to positions of greater responsibility.
These objectives are evaluated by seeking feedback from our alums as well as the supervisors of our alums. Currently, we have three separate surveys used for this purpose: an employed alumni survey, an advanced education alumni survey, and an alumni supervisor survey.
To ensure that our department's undergraduate educational program meets its educational objectives, we have set the following program outcomes.
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to biomedical engineering problems
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- An ability to communicate effectively
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- A knowledge of contemporary issues
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary foe engineering practice.
