Our Biomedical Engineering Department aspires to be the best in the world. Our vision is to be a leading force in the new era of medicine, and we seek to unleash our students’ intrapreneurial spirit and inspire them to be the change they wish to see in biomedical engineering. Central to achieving this vision is the success of our biomedical engineering undergraduate program.
Our mission is to:
- proactively identify students’ needs and take action to address them.
- create a welcoming, innovative, can-do culture
- inspire students about the possibilities of being a biomedical engineer
- equip all of our students with what they need to achieve their aspirations.
In 2014 the Learning Commons Movement was launched to support our undergraduate program in new and innovative ways.
Our graduates must be ready to play a leading role in creatively solving global and complex healthcare challenges. They must be capable of working on collaborative teams whose members come from multiple disciplines with culturally and philosophically diverse viewpoints.
Our graduates must have outstanding communication and social skills and be capable of explaining complex engineering challenges and advances to policy makers who lack scientific and technological expertise.
In short, our graduates must have the scholarly and entrepreneurial confidence needed to thrive in today’s healthcare industry, which is characterized by an ever-quickening pace of technological change and innovation. The Learning Commons Movement prepares our undergraduates for all of these things.
