Our undergraduate program attracts a strong and diverse student body, which includes a large number of CUNY honors scholars. We offer various research and minority scholarships and have obtained ABET accreditation. Our goal is to produce BME graduates who are well prepared for work in industry and entrance into graduate and medical school programs.
We strive to establish an enduring national urban model for Biomedical Engineering programs and a legacy of excellence in public higher education for future generations of students and faculty.
Program Educational Objectives
Our objectives are to prepare graduates:
- For productive employment in biomedical and health related industry.
- To perform successfully in graduate school, medical school or professional programs.
- Who will ethically and responsibly apply their engineering talents for the benefit of society, demonstrating an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to problem solving.
- Who will continue to develop technical knowledge, awareness and leadership skills that will allow them to address domestic or global problems in human health.
- An understanding of biology and physiology along with 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
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to make measurements on, analyze and interpret data from living and non-living systems
- An ability to design a biomedical engineering system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability, and addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve biomedical engineering problems
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- An ability to communicate effectively
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of biomedical engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- A knowledge of contemporary biomedical engineering issues
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
