What will I learn?

Biomedical engineers integrate engineering skills with the understanding of the complexity of physiological systems, from the cellular level to the whole body, in order to improve healthcare. Biomedical engineers design instruments, devices, and develop computational models of physiological systems and signals. Some of the well established specialty areas within the field of biomedical engineering are: bioinstrumentation; biomaterials; biomechanics; cell and tissue engineering; medical imaging; rehabilitation engineering; and quantitative modeling of physiology. Biomedical engineers are employed in universities, in industry, in hospitals, in research facilities of educational and medical institutions, in teaching, and in government regulatory agencies.

Program Educational Objectives:

The biomedical engineering program has established the following educational objectives. These objectives outline what TCNJ biomedical engineers are expected to attain within the first few years after graduation.

  • To contribute to the economic development of New Jersey, the nation and /or the global community through the ethical practice of engineering;
  • To become successful in their chosen career path, whether it is in the practice of engineering, in advanced studies in engineering or science, or in other complementary disciplines;
  • To assume leadership roles in their chosen profession;
  • To enhance career skills through life-long learning.

Student Outcomes:

The student outcomes listed below are expected of all graduates of the biomedical engineering program. These outcomes outline what TCNJ biomedical engineering graduates are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These outcomes outline the knowledge, abilities, tools, and skills the program gives the graduates to enable them to accomplish the biomedical engineering program educational objectives.

Biomedical engineering graduates will 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 Biomedical Engineering-2 Undergraduate Bulletin 2019-2020

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
