B.S.B.E. Career Objectives and Learning Outcomes
The primary objective of the B.S.B.E. program is to prepare students for entry level employment in biomedical engineering related fields. The program aims to provide training for the following O*NET SOC Occupation*: 17-2031.00 Biomedical Engineers. It may also provide training for the following additional O*NET SOC Occupations*: 49-9062.00 Medical Equipment Repairers.
Examples of tasks commonly associated with such occupations as specified on the O*NET website include:
- Design and develop medical diagnostic and clinical instrumentation, equipment, and procedures, using the principles of engineering and biobehavioral sciences.
- Evaluate the safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of biomedical equipment.
- Advise and assist in the application of instrumentation in clinical environments.
- Write documents describing protocols, policies, standards for use, maintenance, and repair of medical equipment.
* O*NET is a taxonomy of hundreds of occupations and an online resource for occupational information. It is being developed under the sponsorship of the US Department of Labor.

The learning outcomes of the program include:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- An ability to apply the engineering design process to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration for public health and safety, and global, cultural, social, environmental, economic, and other factors as appropriate to the discipline.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- An ability to recognize the ongoing need to acquire new knowledge, to choose appropriate learning strategies, and to apply this knowledge.
- An ability to function effectively as a member or leader of a team that establishes goals, plans tasks, meets deadlines, and creates a collaborative and inclusive environment.
