Program Learning Outcomes for BS in Bioengineering Graduates awarded the BS in Bioengineering will be able to demonstrate: 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 on 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 the 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. The overall goal of the BS degree in Bioengineering (BSBE) is to prepare graduates to succeed in professional careers by equipping them with the conceptual and technical expertise sought after by top graduate and medical schools, as well as by companies seeking technical skills in bioengineering. Recognizing that graduates may embark on a number of different educational and career paths, the Program Educational Objectives (PEO) that graduates are expected to exhibit or achieve with the BSBE from Rice University are: Graduates demonstrate technical and/or professional skills, which may include engineering problem-solving, scientific inquiry, and/or engineering design, to solve challenging problems in bioengineering and related fields. Graduates are accomplished at communicating and working collaboratively in diverse work environments. Graduates seeking further education at graduate, professional or medical school find appropriate levels of success in admission to and progression through these programs. Graduates entering professional careers find appropriate career progression and success. The BSBE degree is organized around a core of required courses and a selection of three technical elective courses. Because of the number of options, students should consult early with departmental advisors to plan a program that meets their needs.
