Biomedical Engineering

Program Educational Objectives

We have defined several objectives that we expect our graduates to attain within a few years of graduation:

  1. Our graduates should be engaged professionally in positions that use the skills or abilities associated with broadly educated bioengineers or in good academic standing in programs of graduate study.
  2. Our graduates should be able to articulate how their education at Union College has prepared them to achieve their career and life goals.
  3. Our graduates should show evidence of life-long learning.

Student Outcomes

Graduates from the Biomedical Engineering program will have:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an 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
  • an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to communicate effectively
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
