USF Department of Medical Engineering seeks to advance excellence in biomedical engineering and improve patient care by conducting innovative research, developing impactful technologies, and training students for success as multidisciplinary global leaders.
Program educational Objectives
The Department of Medical Engineering undergraduate program will prepare students, within a few years of graduation, to:
1. Develop into successful and ethical biomedical engineers, healthcare professionals, or other related practitioners;
2. Pursue lifelong learning to expand technical skills and professional knowledge through academic, industrial, and research training; and
3. Use experiences and skills acquired through their biomedical engineering education to improve the local, national, and global healthcare communities.
Expected Student Outcomes for Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Major
The graduates of the B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering at USF will demonstrate that they have:
1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
4. 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
5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze, and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
8. An ability to write complex programming code in at least one language to solve complex biomedical engineering problems and systems
