Biomedical Engineering Objectives and Outcomes


The mission of the biomedical engineering program at Trine University is to enable and equip students to become productive biomedical engineers, to advance to leadership roles in the profession, and to provide service to society.


To satisfy the mission, the department has established the following educational objectives:

  1. To provide graduates with high quality preparation for the practice of and leadership in biomedical engineering and related disciplines at the professional level;
  2. to offer graduates opportunities to pursue graduate studies, lifelong learning, and to offer service to the profession; and
  3. to provide graduates who are able to supply technical and engineering expertise to industry and the community.


As specified for accreditation, the Biomedical Engineering Program assures the students will be able to:

  1. apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
  2. design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
  3. 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;
  4. function on multidisciplinary teams;
  5. identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;
  6. understand professional and ethical responsibility;
  7. communicate effectively;
  8. apply the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
  9. recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning;
  10. identify contemporary issues; and
  11. use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools, necessary for engineering practice.
