Information for Undergraduate Students
Educational Program: Information about the BME curriculum and programs of study.
Notice for all students, especially those entering the BME program in fall of 2012. The BME faculty have approved a new curriculum starting in the Fall of 2012. Students entering Case in 2011 or later and declaring the BME major during the 2011-2012 academic year will be required to follow the new curriculum. All students who entered the program earlier are allowed to choose either.
- Students taking EBME201 in the Fall of 2012 or later must follow the BME tracks
Students interested in securing employment upon obtaining the BS in BME are encouraged to pursue internships and cooperative education experiences as well as to consider a minor in a related engineering program as part of the undergraduate experience.

Surveys for students to provide feedback to the department.
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.
Minor in Biomedical Engineering
Please look under the degree programs for information on the minor in biomedical engineering.
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.
