Student Learning Outcomes
Program Educational Objectives
Our alumni will show evidence of integrating a Christian worldview into their life and vocation by following the example of Christ in being an articulate, ethical and empowered servant leader. This implies being aware of and meeting the needs of humanity by doing most if not all of the following:
- serving community and faith based organizations,
- serving professional societies,
- and serving employers by being a steward of time, competencies and resources.
Our alumni will show evidence of success by demonstrating technical leadership and innovation in biomedical engineering or a similar field. These activities will involve some of the following: creating, researching, innovating, designing, building, testing, inspecting, evaluating, estimating, planning, allocating, forecasting, selling, educating, communicating and collaborating.
Our alumni will continue to develop professionally through involvement in post-graduate learning activities. These activities would include participating in training or continued education, receiving a post graduate degree, attending and or delivering presentations, papers or posters at professional conferences, taking and passing the FE and PE exam, and/or attending or delivering presentations at professional society meetings or in academic and educational settings.
Our alumni will show evidence of success in at least one of a variety of post graduate experiences primarily in an engineering company, graduate school in a biomedical-related field, or medical school. These experiences include but are not limited to employment in industry, public service, education, missions/NGOs, and/or participation in graduate school, and success could be demonstrated through achievements such as promotion, completion of an advanced degree, and awards.
Student Learning Outcomes
Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. The outcomes prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives.
CBU graduates are expected to acquire:
EGR 1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
EGR 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
EGR 3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
EGR 4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
EGR 5. 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
EGR 6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
EGR 7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
EGR 8. an ability to articulate a Christian worldview on personal, professional, technical, and societal issues
EGR 9. an ability to develop attributes of leadership in an innovation-driven environment.
