School of Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program Level Outcomes

Upon degree completion, graduates of our programs will be able to...

  • Employ an understanding of audience, purpose and context to communicate effectively in a range of situations using appropriate media while displaying a significant aptitude for presenting scientific and technical materials to diverse audiences
  • Apply his or her knowledge and skills, including those associated with engineering and life science, to make a positive difference on issues of public concern.
  • Recognize ethical issues, consider multiple points of view, and use critical ethical reasoning to determine the appropriate behavior to follow and demonstrate a high level of integrity and a positive work ethic combined with a thorough understanding of the ethical implications and obligations associated with the practice of biomedical engineering.
  • Formulate highly original solutions while moving beyond the conventional to new methods blending creative and practical approaches, methods and designs which may involve pioneering applications along the interface of engineering and biology. The graduate can demonstrate the ability to create quality products and processes that are state-of-the-practice in his or her field
  • Articulate a vision or goal in such a manner as to promote collaboration and successful implementation. The graduate displays a willingness to overcome adversity and work diligently in pursuit of goals, thus serving as a role model for others
  • Work either independently or in diverse groups to effectively and efficiently to respond to academic and work requirements
  • Creatively solve problems from both analytic and synthetic perspectives using multiple approaches, integrating the life sciences, engineering, and the humanities. The graduate is able to recognize, incorporate and adapt to the limitations and consequences of applying various problem solutions.
  • Collect and process data, information and knowledge to answer specific questions or generate new conceptual models and hypotheses. The graduate evaluates these models and hypotheses using appropriate experimental, mathematical and statistical approaches.
  • Make appropriate use of technologies to communicate, collaborate, solve problems, make decisions, and conduct research, as well as foster creativity and life-long learning. The graduate is able to use state-of-the-art technological resources and tools and keeps up on advancements in her or her field of study and/or practice
