Our undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering (BSBE) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org/).
Program Educational Objectives for Biomedical Engineering
Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering Program of the UH Cullen College of Engineering obtain employment in a wide variety of biomedical engineering fields. Many further their education to pursue careers in research, medicine, business, law, or other areas. Regardless of the career path they choose, we believe that an education in biomedical engineering will prepare them for a productive professional experience, and we strive to provide them with the technical, team-working, communication, and professional skills necessary for success. Accordingly, we have established the following Program Educational Objectives:
- Our graduates will pursue advanced studies in biomedical engineering or other disciplines if they so choose.
- Our graduates will meet or exceed the expectations of their employers in the biomedical engineering workplace or in other professional careers of their choosing.
- Our graduates will engage in self-development activities that will allow them to adapt to evolving technical challenges and changing career opportunities.
