Program Educational Objectives
The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Biomedical Engineering program are:
- Successfully engage in their chosen career by applying their scientific knowledge and technical skills, and demonstrate quantitative, analytical, and systems approach in solving problems in their professional practice.
- Apply non-technical skills, such as critical and innovative thinking, entrepreneurial mindset, adaptability, self-motivation, teamwork, effective documentation of results, management skills, and effective communication, to identify and solve problems in their chosen professional field.
- Engage in life-long learning and demonstrate leadership and ethics in their professional practice with involvement in the community and professional organizations, and conduct themselves with the highest professional integrity.
- Understand and serve the needs of their local, national, and global communities.
- Practice behaviors that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and the establishment of racial, social, and environmental justice.
The student outcomes for the Biomedical Engineering (BME) programs are:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
