Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering

Much of the work in bioengineering consists of research and development, incorporating knowledge from a broad array of fields such as healthcare, ethics, life sciences, natural sciences, mathematics, biosystems analysis, and engineering design. Prominent bioengineering contributions include the development of prosthetics to restore limb function, medical devices such as surgical repair devices and implanted stimulators to restore heart and motor function, imaging systems such as MRI and ultrasound scanners to diagnose diseases, biotechnologies and biomaterials for tissue regeneration and surgical therapies, and systems for targeted drug delivery in the body.

The program of study leading to the B.S. in Bioengineering (BSBioE) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (

ABET Program Educational Objectives 

Within a few years after graduating from the Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering Program, the graduates are expected to have:

  1. performed effectively in a bioengineering related position in industry or in graduate/professional schools.
  2. demonstrated problem solving through leadership, collaboration and teamwork and multi-disciplinary approaches.
  3. been active in their communities and professional societies.
  4. enhanced their professional development through lifelong learning.

ABET Student Outcomes

The student outcomes, measured in terms of the knowledge and skills the graduates of the BSBioE program are expected to demonstrate at graduation are:

  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; and
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
