The biomedical engineering curriculum is interdisciplinary in nature, incorporating courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering.
A solid foundation in the mathematical, physical and life sciences is necessary for the engineer to function effectively in a medically or biologically oriented problem-solving environment.
Biomedical engineers must communicate with life scientists, physicians and other health care providers to describe and model complex biological systems; collect and analyze experimental or clinical data; understand the capabilities and limitations of sophisticated instrumentation; and understand the principles of design.
Within a few years of graduation, our alumni are expected to:
The Biomedical Engineering Program has the following student learning outcomes for its undergraduates:
While not specified as student outcomes, the program does assess student fulfillment of BME program criteria, including:
BME.1 Understand Biology and Physiology (BME program-specific criteria)
BME.2 Apply Math, Science and Engineering to problems at the interface of engineering and biology (BME program-specific criteria)
BME.3 Make measurements on and interpret data from living systems, addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living and nonliving materials and systems (BME program-specific criteria)
