ABET Biomedical Engineering (BME)

The Rutgers University - New Brunswick program in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

BME Program Educational Objectives

The current educational objectives of the Biomedical Engineering program are:

  • graduates establish themselves as practicing professionals in biomedical or biotechnology industries or engage themselves in advance study in biomedical engineering or a related field,
  • graduates make positive contributions in biomedical industries and/or other sectors, and
  • graduates work successfully as a member of a professional team and function effectively as responsible professionals.

BME Student Outcomes

Students from the Biomedical Engineering program will attain (by the time of graduation):

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
