The Bachelor of Science program in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Biomedical engineering students will possess knowledge of contemporary issues and be provided the education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context. They will recognize the need for and have an ability to engage in life-long learning. Also of key importance in the program is that student learn to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
