Student Outcomes

What TCNJ Biomedical Engineering students are expected to know and be able to do at graduation. What knowledge, abilities, tools and skills the program gives the graduates to enable them to accomplish the educational objectives.

The Student Outcomes listed below are expected of all graduates of the Biomedical Engineering Program. BME graduates will have:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering;
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
  • 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;
  • an ability to function in multidisciplinary teams;
  • an ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems;
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;
  • an ability to communicate effectively;
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of 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 issues;
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice;
  • 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;
  • an 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.
