The University of Washington Bioengineering undergraduate program will enable its graduates to:
- Earn advanced degrees and/or obtain employment in bioengineering-related fields, such as medicine, device development, or biotechnology.
- Advance their careers by obtaining appropriate educational and professional qualifications.
- Serve their profession and community.
- Contribute to responsible development of new technical knowledge.
- Take leadership roles in addressing domestic or global bioengineering-related issues.
Engineering programs must demonstrate that their graduates have:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- An ability to communicate effectively
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning
