The Mission of this department is building a bridge between engineering, sciences and medicine. This this result could be got by train the next diverse generation of biomedical engineers . In addition to that it is necessary to conduct research leading to significant discoveries in medical sciences.This could be achieved by conducting design and development of innovative biomedical instruments technology and translate that to the areas of applications to engage with the local to global community.
Program Educational Objectives
- Produce an engineer who can proceed with advanced studies in biomedical instruments engineering. In addition to proficiently in practice as a biomedical instrument engineer.
- graduate engineers won proficiency in one or more of the following fields:
- Clinical applications and tools
- Products development
- Academic and applied research
- provide the comity with a students and graduates who have proficiently communications skills and complemented to leadership, ethics and comity services.
Preparing the academic needs to make the faculty objectives come true. This could be done through prepare a full scientific base in the fields of engineering and sciences and the development of the academic tools and updating courses. all of this will be done by keeping up the development in the field of biomedical instrumentation by the ability to put the hand on problems and search for solutions by using the engineering and technical knowledge tools.
Consistency of the Program Educational Objectives with the Mission of the Institution
This Department was established because of the belief that biomedical engineering is a major in which the principles of traditional engineering fields, such as mechanical, materials, electrical, and chemical engineering are integrated with the chemical, physical and biological sciences. These linked sciences were directed towards understanding the physiological processes in humans, and towards the solution of medical problems that belongs to the medical devices and instruments. Engineering will play an important role in advancing medical technology. This role is by developing medical instruments and biotechnology, and inspection devices problems solving during service. According to above it could be indicated that, Biomedical instruments engineering is valuable and requires a set and integrated foundation in the physical, chemical, mathematical and biological sciences.
The BMIE program relies primarily upon 3 groups of constituents: its faculty, students, and alumni, and secondarily from industry and professional graduate schools who have input into the program educational objectives.
Also, University administration can contribute to the program through the development, delivery, and assessment of a broad range of courses in the arts and sciences as well as ensuring that students have the tools and learning environment necessary to develop as students, engineers, and citizens.
The most immediate impact comes from:
BMIE Majors: This group represents the current students within the program. These students contribute to the assessment process through the use of data generated in courses, course evaluations, senior exit surveys, and the student advisory board.
BMIE Alumni: This group contains the graduates of the BMIE program. Their contributions will include completion of departmental alumni surveys, college and university surveys, representation on external review boards, and direct communications with the Department.
BMIE Faculty: The departmental faculty members are responsible for ensuring the success of the undergraduate BMIE program. These responsibilities include implementing the process of assessment and revision of program objectives and outcomes in collaboration with larger constituent body.
Employers Industry: This group represents employers or potential employers of BMIE alumni at any point in their career, i.e., immediately after graduation from this institution or at any point later in their career.
Professional/Graduate Schools: This group generally represents the employers/faculty that are the direct recipients of the BMIE graduates, although in some cases BMIE alumni may be returning to graduate school following some industrial or service experience. These schools may include BMIE graduate programs, similar graduate training programs, e.g., biomedical sciences, medical school, engineering management programs, or other post-undergraduate training. Their role is in the review of program objectives through communication with departmental faculty.
Process for Review of the Program Educational Objectives
The educational program is under continuous evaluation procedure. This procedure in under the control of three main sides:
The Head of Department Committee: head of department holding a contraries meeting during the academic year to evaluate the whole educational process trying to solve the weak points by many ways
ABET Organization: Self Evaluation Report also prepared yearly and giving feedback about eh education process through the criteria’s and evaluation points.
Students: the students is an important evaluator also where yearly survey giving feedback evaluations about eh educational process
The Exam sampling and average statistical plotting give a good indication about the process outcomes presented at the end of each semester.
The Consultant Industrials Committee: two meeting along the academic year will be held to inform the department about the situation and evaluate the behavior of the graduate students through monitoring them and their activities in market.
