Engineering Accreditation Commission

Vision

The departmental vision is to be a global leader in biomedical engineering by working to solve the world’s greatest health problems and engineering innovative research solutions that advance health, by providing quality teaching, mentoring, and experiential learning, and by excelling in professional and public service.

Mission Statement

The fundamental mission of the department is to serve its students by providing an exciting and challenging academic environment; serve its profession through the discovery and dissemination of knowledge; serve the university system by facilitating and leading multidisciplinary biomedical research; and serve the growing biotechnology and biomedical device industry in Texas via technology transfer and educating the workforce.

Program Educational Objectives

The objectives of the biomedical engineering program are to produce high-quality graduates with a broad-based education in engineering, life sciences and natural sciences; graduates who earn graduate degrees, careers in the biomedical or biotechnology industries or entry into medical or other professional schools; graduates who will make significant contributions in biomedical industries, medicine and other sectors; and graduates who will apply acquired knowledge appropriately, work professionally with others, effectively communicate ideas and technical information and continue to learn and improve their knowledge base and skills.

Student Outcomes

The student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives 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
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
