Student Outcomes and Program Educational Objectives

Bioengineering

Program Educational Objectives

The undergraduate Bioengineering program at Miami University focuses on the integration of interdisciplinary engineering sciences, biological sciences, engineering design and a global liberal education. It has premedical, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, and bioprocessing engineering concentrations. Based on the needs of our constituents, we expect our graduates to attain the following within a few years of graduation:

  • the demonstrated technical knowledge, skills and expertise of bioengineering required to provide practical and economically viable solutions in their chosen profession.
  • the organizational, leadership, and general communication skills to successfully lead interdisciplinary teams.
  • higher-level cognitive skills and critical thinking to analyze complex problems and develop robust solutions.
  • professional development through lifelong learning, and successful adaptation to the ever changing societal environment and evolving technologies within their chosen profession.
  • sound ethical judgment in decision making, leadership roles, and matters of health, safety and serving the needs of society.

Student Outcomes

  • Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • Ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • Ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • The ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • Recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • Knowledge of contemporary issues
  • Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
