Mission Statement:The mission of the Department of Bioengineering is to provide an environment where students can achieve a high level of competence in the skills and knowledge inherent to the discipline of bioengineering. The discipline of bioengineering is distinguished by the application of quantitative engineering analysis and design to systems that include living components. Mastery of these skills and knowledge will prepare students for careers in the growing biomedical industry and for admission to graduate and professional schools.The Bioengineering Department core faculty is complemented by a large cadre of adjunct faculty drawn from almost every College within the University (Liberal Arts and Sciences, Medicine, Applied Health Sciences, Business Administration, Public Health, Dentistry, and Pharmacy). The faculty teaches a comprehensive curriculum that addresses each of the educational objectives necessary to achieve the department's mission.
6-Objectives Met 1-Objectives Not Met
Program Educational Objectives:1. Graduates will compete effectively and favorably with peers from Big Ten universities for positions in industry, professional school, or graduate programs, as dictated by the students' broader goals while at UIC.2. Graduates will remain active contributors to the field of bioengineering through professional societies, service to scholarly or technical journals, alumni activities, mentoring, contributions to education or human resources, or other activities beyond the basic requirements of their occupation.3. Graduates will demonstrate leadership in their professions, as evidenced by scholarly and technical publication or other measure of professional productivity, including awards and honors, and advancement within the organizations in which they are employed, as appropriate to the individual career path.
Please allow us to keep in contact with you. The success of our alumni is important to us. Let us know if there is some way we can serve you. Your input will help us to best prepare each new class of BioE Alums!Contact Information:
