Bachelor of Science In Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineers study the human body from an engineering perspective and create high-tech solutions for improving human health. The Biomedical Engineer's unique combination of engineering fundamentals and human physiology is highly sought after by today's medical device manufacturers and medical research institutions. In fact, Forbes' Magazine recently named Biomedical Engineering the #1 most valuable college major (May 2012). The CBU Biomedical Engineering program prepares graduates for the design and testing biomedical products, such as implantables, wearables, or medical equipment. The program also allows the student to use their engineering fundamentals to intimately explore the great complexities of the human body and admire the intricate work of God, our Creator and Savior.

Biomedical Engineering graduates find themselves with a variety of career options. They are well-suited for the design and development of implantables, such as artificial joints or stents, wearables, such as glucose monitors or artificial limbs, and health care equipment, such as a medical imaging systems or surgical consoles. Many select to join cutting-edge research programs where they use their knowledge of science and engineering to expand our understanding of human conditions and develop novel methods to treat disease and disabilities.

Program Enrollment and Degree Data

Note: Per ABET's policy, ABET accreditation can be obtained about 16 months after the first graduates and would be retroactive to those first graduates.

  • 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 EIT 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.
