The educational objectives of the biomedical engineering program are that a few years after graduation, alumni can demonstrate they will (1) function in a technically competent manner to address challenges in biomedical engineering; (2) use their broad-based interdisciplinary education and effective communication skills to advance in their profession; (3) be prepared for successful advanced study in biomedical engineering or entry to graduate professional programs such as medicine, dentistry or business; and (4) be engaged in the design of biomedical products, processes and systems within the context of ethical, societal and environmental factors.
Science and engineering applicants should complete four years of mathematics, the minimum level including trigonometry, mathematics analysis, analytical geometry or precalculus. Science and engineering applicants are also expected to have taken four years of science, to include physics and chemistry. It is recommended that biomedical engineering majors take the most rigorous mathematics and science curriculum offered by their high school.
Candidates for a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering must complete 134 credit hours of curriculum. Electives are selected in consultation with the faculty advisor to reflect the knowledge a student needs either for employment or graduate school.
