Departmental Mission Statement

The mission of the Biomedical and Chemical Engineering and Sciences (BCES) Department is to provide a safe working environment in the pursuit of excellence in education, research and innovation in the fields of biomedical science and engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering.  The attainment of these goals is achieved by

  1. offering undergraduate and graduate level curricula that provide students the opportunity to obtain the required knowledge, and technical and communication skills, and thorough understanding of the associated safety, ethical, social and economic responsibilities in their respective fields;
  2. engaging in internationally recognized research that will increase knowledge and lead to technological innovations; and
  3. providing an atmosphere that stimulates intellectual curiosity and encourages creative interactions among faculty and students.

Success in the accomplishment of these goals will equip students with the capacity to thrive in diverse professional roles in research institutions, global industries and local communities.
