Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program

Mission Statement

The Stevens biomedical engineering program produces graduates who possess a broad foundation in engineering and liberal arts, combined with a depth of disciplinary knowledge at the interface of engineering and biology. This knowledge is mandatory for success in a biomedical engineering career. Biomedical engineering is also an enabling step for a career in medicine, dentistry, business or law.


The objectives of the biomedical engineering program are to prepare students such that within several years after graduation:

  • Graduates will identify biomedical engineering challenges and lead solution concepts, are able to nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization by applying their knowledge of fundamental engineering principles, work experience and state-of-the-art tools and techniques.
  • Graduates will be among the leaders of the fields in the development of biomedical devices, implants, tissues and systems to meet the needs of society.
  • Graduates will establish themselves as leaders in their chosen career path by applying their skills in problem solving, teamwork, ethics, management, communication and their awareness of professional and social issues.


By the time of graduation, biomedical engineering students will have:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  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.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  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.
  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.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
  8. an ability to apply fundamental knowledge in biomedical engineering to nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization.

The Biomedical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Enrollment and Graduation Data
