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 has been ranked in the top group for decades.
We encourage you to contact our department while you are considering how Biomedical Engineering at Case is right for you. We offer individual consultations with primary faculty and tours of our classrooms, laboratories, and building throughout the year. Please see thewelcome message from our department chairman for more information about the department.
The degree of Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The undergraduate admissions process is conducted through the Case Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Case offers a single-door admission policy: you apply to the entire university, not to a specific department. This provides you with an important advantage, because you don't have to choose a major when you apply. In fact, once you're admitted, you can change your major at anytime without applying to a different department!
There's only one application to complete. You can apply online, which is easy, efficient, and cost-effective: Case waives the application fee for applications submitted online. You can also take advantage of one of many other convenient ways to submit your application. We consider your application individually, offer credit for Advanced Placement, and guarantee on-campus housing. You can apply for non-binding early action or regular decision as a freshman. You can also apply to Case as an international student, home-schooled student, transfer student, or binary student.
No matter how you choose to apply to Case, check out our admissions calendar to make sure you apply on time.
***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.
