Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Handbook I. INTRODUCTION A. Statement of Purpose We put this manual together to answer your questions and to explain the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering (BSBMED) Degree at Georgia Tech. This does not replace the General Catalog, but should be used as a guide to answer questions specific to our undergraduate program. You are welcome to suggest improvements in the format or content which would make this more useful. B. The Undergraduate Staff The Undergraduate Academic Office is in Room 1109 of the UA Whitaker Building. The Undergraduate Academic Advisor, Paul Fincannon, can help you with scheduling, academic goals, or other concerns regarding academics. The Director of Student, Alumni and Industrial Relations, Sally Gerrish , can help you with career information and guidance, including organization of medical or graduate school applications. Here is their contact information: Paul Fincannon Sally Gerrish Ph: 404-894-9061 Ph: 404-894-7063 Email: paul.fincannon@bme.gatech.edu Email: sally.gerrish@bme.gatech.edu II. USEFUL INFORMATION A. Coulter Department Educational Objectives The faculty of The Wallace H. Coulter Department will strive to continuously improve our undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering. To this end, the faculty worked with the Department’s Undergraduate Program Committee to develop the following educational objectives: Students will obtain a strong foundation in science and engineering fundamentals that is centered around the interface of engineering and the life sciences a strong foundation in mathematics and computation to support biomedical engineering analysis, modeling, and design a broad education necessary for professional practice in biomedical engineering, including an understanding of ethical, social, and professional responsibility the ability to use modern science and engineering techniques, skills, and computational tools to support biomedical engineering analysis, modeling, and design
