Biomedical Engineering: Premedical Educational Mission and Goals

Undergraduate Major in Biomedical Engineering: Premedical

Program Educational Objectives: Graduates of the Biomedical Engineering: Premedical program will:
(1) demonstrate a broad knowledge in the field of biomedical engineering;
(2) demonstrate critical reasoning as well as quantitative skills to identify, formulate, analyze and solve biomedical problems;
(3) qualify to pursue entry into a medical college, or medical research in biomedical engineering, or other professional health programs.
(Program educational objectives are those aspects of engineering that help shape the curriculum; achievement of these objectives is a shared responsibility between the student and UCI.)
