The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering undergraduate degree program began in 2016 and received ABET accreditation in 2023.

Program Educational Outcomes (PEOs):

The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering is committed to excellence and seeks to graduate biomedical engineers who, collectively after 3-5 years:

  • Assume leadership positions in biomedical technology-based industries;
  • Conceive, design, and realize useful products, systems, and services, properly respecting economic, environmental, cultural, life safety, and ethical standards or constraints;
  • Discover and apply new knowledge, and develop new tools for the practice of engineering;
  • Complete programs of graduate, medical, and/or professional studies and continue to learn throughout their lives;
  • Are valued in their careers, whether for mastery of the disciplines central to biomedical engineering or for the broader analytical or creative abilities fostered by their engineering education; and
  • Engage with their communities, profession, and the world.

These PEOs describe long-term accomplishments for which we seek to prepare our graduates. Progress toward them is expected to be measurable within three to five years of graduation.

Student Outcome Assessment: 

Our curriculum provides both breadth and depth across a range of engineering and science topics consistent with the program educational objectives. Our graduates are expected to have experience in:

  1. Applying principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and statistics to solve to solve challenges in medicine.
  2. Solving problems of and at the interface of living and engineered systems.
  3. Analyzing, modeling, designing, and realizing bio/biomedical engineering devices, systems, components, or processes.

To achieve these educational goals, the following Student Outcomes (SOs) are assessed:

Outcome #1

The ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex bio/biomedical engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, calculus-based physics, computer science, mathematics, and statistics.

Outcome #2

The 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. 

Outcome #3

The ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences. 

Outcome #4

The 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.  

Outcome #5

The 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.

Outcome #6

The ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

Outcome #7

The ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
