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

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objectives* of the Biomedical Engineering undergraduate program are:

  1. graduates will be prepared for employment as biomedical engineers in industries serving or related to health professions;
  2. graduates will be prepared to pursue professional studies;
  3. graduates will engage in activities that provide continuing self-development in biomedical engineering and related careers.

* adopted 2 February 2006

These objectives are posted at: http://www.memphis.edu/ugcatalog/collegeprog/herff/biomedical.php and appear on the bulletin board of the main hallway for the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Student Outcomes

The following outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation:Graduates will be able to solve biomedical engineering problems by integrating and applying knowledge of biology, mathematics, physiology, physical sciences, and/or engineering.
