Biomedical Engineering: Premedical

Program Educational Objectives: Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering: Premedical program will:

  1. demonstrate a broad knowledge in the field of biomedical engineering;
  2. demonstrate critical reasoning as well as quantitative skills to identify, formulate, analyze and solve biomedical problems;
  3. qualify to pursue entry into a medical college, or medical research in biomedical engineering, or other professional health programs.

(Program educational objectives are those aspects of engineering that help shape the curriculum; achievement of these objectives is a shared responsibility between the student and UCI.)

Biomedical Engineering: Premedical Student Outcomes

  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.

The Biomedical Engineering: Premedical program is not designed to be accredited, and therefore is not accredited by ABET.
