The Augusta University Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Systems Engineering is the
only one of its kind in Georgia, providing students with the skills to succeed in
healthcare, education, and public or private sector careers.
The Biomedical Systems Engineering (BMSE) program concentrates on biomedical and health
informatics systems dedicated to the people, processes, and organizations in the healthcare
field. We educate students in cutting-edge technologies while providing knowledge
and skills so they may help provide cybersecurity to this critical field
Program-Level Learning Outcomes:
Students who graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Systems Engineering
will be able to:
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying engineering,
science, and mathematics principles.
- 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.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences about technical information.
- 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.
- Function effectively on a team whose members provide leadership, create a collaborative
and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use
engineering judgment to conclude.
- Apply principles of engineering, biology, human physiology, chemistry, calculus-based
physics, mathematics (through differential equations), and statistics.
- Solve bio/biomedical engineering problems associated with interacting with living
and non-living systems.
- Analyze, model, design, and realize bio/biomedical engineering devices, systems, components,
- Make measurements on and interpret data from living systems.
WHAT YOU'LL STUDY
