Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science Program in Bioengineering is seeking accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives (PEOs) of the bioengineering department represent what our graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. The PEOs of the bioengineering major are to produce engineers who:

  1. Are technically strong, innovative, and rigorous problem solvers that excel at the professional practice of engineering while maintaining a high standard of professional and ethical responsibility.
  2. Are multifaceted and able to work with and lead multidisciplinary teams.
  3. Pursue advanced degrees in engineering and medicine.

Student Outcomes

The bioengineering program has documented student outcomes that support the program educational objectives. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering.

Student outcomes are outcomes (1) through (7):

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
