  • Academic Learning Compact - Biomedical Engineering

    Biomedical engineering blends traditional engineering techniques with biological sciences and medicine to improve the quality of human health and life. The discipline focuses on understanding complex living systems via experimental and analytical techniques and on development of devices, methods and algorithms that advance medical and biological knowledge while improving the effectiveness and delivery of clinical medicine.

    Additional information is available from your major's website.


    Before Graduating You Must

    • Pass assessment by two or more faculty and/or industry practitioners of student performance on a major design experience.
    • Pass assessment in two courses of individual assignments targeted to each learning outcome. Assessment will be provided by the instructor of the course according to department standards.
    • Complete an exit interview in the final semester.
    • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.

    Skills You Will Acquire in the Major (SLOs)

    1. Solve biomedical engineering problems by applying knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering principles.
    2. Design and conduct biomedical engineering experiments and analyzing and interpreting the data.
    3. Design a biomedical device, component, technology or process to meet identified clinical needs within realistic economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and regulatory constraints.
    4. Communicate technical data and design information effectively in speech and in writing to other biomedical engineers.
