Student Outcomes

The Biomedical Technology-Instruments degree program (BMT-I) adopted the ABET technology accreditation commission (ETAC) a-k general criteria student outcomes and, as mentioned above, has integrated them into the program criteria requirements.  These final adopted outcomes are listed below:

a. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of  biomedical technology to include the application of circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers, biomechanics, biomedical instrumentation systems, and safety in the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of biomedical equipment.

b. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biological sciences, engineering, and technology to building, testing, operation, and maintenance of biomedical equipment and the ability to utilize statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of biomedical systems.

c. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.

d. an ability to analyze, design, and implement biomedical systems, components or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.

e. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.

f. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined biomedical technology problems.

g. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.

h. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.

i. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.

j. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context and an understanding of the clinical application of biomedical equipment.

k. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
