The departmental mission is to serve society as a center for learning and knowledge-creation in engineering and science for the purpose of advancing biology and medicine.
Our overall objective is to prepare those receiving a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering for a variety of career paths. To that end, our undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide technical proficiency, as well as communication and other professional skills so that our graduates will be able to:
- Pursue careers in the biomedical engineering industry or related fields.
- Undertake advanced study (e.g., MS, PhD) in biomedical engineering or a related field, in preparation for careers utilizing further training.
- Complete professional degrees (e.g., in medicine, dentistry, law, business) in preparation for careers utilizing those degrees.
Our objectives and curriculum are evaluated and revised based on feedback from our advisory boards and alumni as well as their supervisors.
