Engineering Accredidation ABET

Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology (ABET)

The Biological Systems Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Program Educational Objectives

A BS degree in Biological Systems Engineering should prepare students to do the following:

  1. Apply life sciences in engineering at the biochemical, cellular, organismal, and macro levels.
  2. Solve biological systems engineering problems while employed in the private or public sector.
  3. Consider the environmental consequences of their engineering activities.
  4. Communicate effectively with professional colleagues and public constituencies.
  5. Act in an ethical manner.
  6. Continue education to adapt and thrive in a changing professional world

Student Outcomes

Our teaching is designed to impart a strong foundation in mathematics, life sciences, and engineering. Students completing the program will have the following:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgements, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions.
  6. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
