Tulane's Biomedical Engineering Program (established in 1977) has been continuously accredited since 1981 by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Our undergraduate program provides students with the breadth required for participation in the interdisciplinary field of biomedical engineering and the depth required by engineers to advance the practice in our discipline. Our objective is to prepare graduates who are able to successfully pursue:
By the time of graduation, we expect our students to demonstrate that they have attained the following outcomes:
Additionally, our program prepares our graduates with experience in:
(a) Applying principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, calculus-based physics, mathematics (through differential equations) and statistics;
(b) Solving bio/biomedical engineering problems, including those associated with the interaction between living and non-living systems;
(c) Analyzing, modeling, designing, and realizing bio/biomedical engineering devices, systems, components, or processes; and
(d) Making measurements on and interpreting data from living systems.
