Mission Statement

Biomedical Engineering Mission Statement

The mission of the BME undergraduate program is to provide students with a broad and flexible education in engineering and biological science as well as medically related subjects. The students are prepared to analyze, synthesize, and link knowledge in the multi-disciplinary fields, with the emphasis on quantitative approaches and methods. The students will be integral part of the society to improve the understanding and control of biological processes towards improving human health. Our curriculum guides our students toward skill in creating new knowledge and technologies as well as applying current knowledge.
