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.


Our graduates will be able to apply their acquired knowledge of biological, medical, and engineering disciplines. In addition, they will exhibit technical competency, effective communication skills, and be a valued team member.

Within a few years after graduation,

(1)    Graduates will successfully advance in their field and continue to grow professionally and personally.

(2)    Graduates will contribute to their field through innovation and technology development by solving open-ended problems.

(3)    Graduates will provide leadership and service to society while maintaining ethical principles and social responsibilities.


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

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with considerations of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informal judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
