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:

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.

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.
