Objectives & Outcomes

 

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers both undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering.

Program Objectives and Student Outcomes for Bioengineers

The bioengineering program seeks to provide an environment and opportunities that enable students to pursue their goals in an innovative program with a diversity of offerings that is rigorous and challenging.

Educational Objectives

Student Outcomes

The program has the following major educational objectives with the expectation that our alumni will have successful careers in the many diverse areas of bioengineering profession.  Within a few years of obtaining a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering, we expect our graduates to have the following attributes:

    At the time of graduation, graduates from our program will have:

1. Depth: To be effective in applying life science concepts and bioengineering principles in engineering practice or for advanced study.

  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex bioengineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • 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
  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations relevant to bioengineering and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation on living cells and nonliving material safely, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

2. Breadth: To have productive careers in the many diverse areas of bioengineering or in pursuit of graduate studies in engineering, law, medicine or business.

  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations relevant to bioengineering and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed for bioengineering practice, using appropriate learning strategies

3. Professionalism: To function effectively in the complex modern work environment with the ability to assume professional leadership roles.

  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations relevant to bioengineering and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • 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
  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed for bioengineering practice, using appropriate learning strategiesThe capacity of function and work effectively alone and in a team environment.
