To achieve its educational mission, the Bioengineering Program has established the following set of Program Educational Objectives. Three to five years after graduation, we expect our students will:

  1. Graduates in professional practice function effectively as responsible and collaborative professionals in Bioengineering or in a related field;
  2. Graduates pursue advanced degrees or engage in other forms of continuing education.


The Bioengineering program has established that by graduation students will attain:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to conduct experiments, make measurements, and analyze and interpret data in living systems
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
  4. an ability to function in a team environment toward a common goal
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of bioengineering solutions in a global and societal context
  9. a recognition of the need for, and ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern scientific tools necessary for bioengineering practice
  12. an understanding of biology, chemistry, and physiology
  13. an ability to apply advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), science, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology
  14. an ability to address the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems

The Bioengineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
