The BME Program Criteria
The structure of the curriculum must provide both breadth and depth across the range of engineering topics implied by the title of the program. The curriculum prepares graduates:
- to have an understanding of biology and physiology, and the capability to apply advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), science, and engineering to solve the problems at the interface of engineering and biology;
- with the ability to make measurements on and interpret data from living systems, addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems.
