BME program and ABET Accreditation

The BME Program adopted the current ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) definition for Student Outcoems (SO):

 

 Student Outcomes

 

A    An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

B    An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

C   

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.

D    An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.

E    An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.

F    An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.

G    An ability to communicate effectively.

H   

The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.

I    A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.

J    A knowledge of contemporary issues.

K    An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

 

These student outcomes are related to our program educational objectives in this way:
