To ensure that our department's undergraduate educational program meets its educational objectives, we have set the following program outcomes. Within the framework of our objectives and outcomes, we feel it is important that our undergraduate program emphasize the development in our students of problem-solving skills, the ability to think independently, and the ability to assess ideas with an open mind. We expect that these qualities will be important to their success as they go on in careers in biomedical engineering, to clinical programs such as medical school, occupational therapy, and prosthetics & orthotics, professional programs like law school and business school, or to graduate school in biomedical engineering.
Specifically, the program outcomes for our department are to develop in our students:
- 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.
