The Bioengineering Educational Objectives describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Graduates of the bioengineering program are expected within a few years of graduation to have:
- Established themselves as practicing professionals or engaged in advanced study in bioengineering or a related area.
- Demonstrated their ability to work successfully as a member of a professional team and function effectively as responsible and ethcial professionals.
- Established themselves as practicing professionals in non-engineering professions such as law, medicine or business based on good problem-solving skills acquired in bioengineering.
- Demonstrated their ability to succeed as self-employed agents in new start up ventures.
There are fourteen outcomes that must be satisfied by students before graduating:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to bioengineering problems
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- An ability to design a system or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve bioengineering 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, economic, environmental, 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 for engineering practice
- An understanding of biology and physiology
- The capability to apply advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), science, and engineering to solve the problems at the interface of engineering and biology
- The ability to make measurements on and interpret data from living systems, addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems
