Accreditation

As of 2016, the BS program in biomedical engineering at RIT, has been recognized as an accredited program by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Annual program enrollment and degrees award information can be found here. (opens as a PDF).

Program Objectives

Graduates of the Bachelor of Science degree program in Biomedical Engineering at RIT are expected, within a few years of graduation, to have:

  • demonstrated an ability to develop system-based engineering solutions that satisfy constraints on the human body and imposed by society. (PEO1: “Systems-Based Integrators”).
  • demonstrated an ability to enhance their skills through formal education and training, independent inquiry, and professional development.  (PEO2: “Life-Long Learners”).
  • demonstrated an ability to work independently as well as collaboratively with others, and demonstrate leadership, accountability, initiative, and ethical and social responsibility. (PEO 3. “Engineering Professionals”).
  • demonstrated an ability to successfully pursue graduate degrees at the Master's and/or PhD level. (PEO 4. “Graduate Education”)

To prepare graduates for attainment of the program educational objectives, the department has identified and documented the student outcomes to be achieved by each of the courses offered within the curriculum and regularly reviews the materials to ensure continued success of the program.
