Biological Engineering Program Objectives

Within a few years of graduation, our graduates should:

  1. Be actively involved in engineering design and/or experimental design and have communicated technical information through peer-reviewed journals, presentations or teaching.
  2. Participate in professional development through the attainment of a graduate/professional degree, professional licensure or participation in short courses or seminars relevant to their field of work.
  3. Work successfully as part of a team and function as a responsible professional.
  4. Become leaders in their profession or through volunteer/community service.

The biological engineering program continues to grow and improve in both academics and research.

Biological Engineering Student Outcomes

By the time of graduation, students will be able to demonstrate:

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

Biomedical Engineering Program Objectives

Within a few years of graduation, graduates of the Mississippi State B.S. BME program are expected to attain:

  1. Employment in industry, academia, research laboratories, and medicine.
  2. Enrollment in programs of advanced study in biomedical engineering and related disciplines.
  3. New biomedical engineering-related skills and competencies beyond those acquired during the undergraduate program of study.
