In this ‘Work in Progress’ paper, we present our efforts to develop a new concentration area in biomedical engineering (BME) within a newly created Integrated Engineering major at a primarily undergraduate institution that has been a “Changemaker”-designated campus since 2011. The goal with the development of our BME concentration area is to provide students with an engineering curriculum that is explicitly sociotechnical in nature. By sociotechnical we mean that our students should understand engineering is not simply technical problem solving but requires an understanding of how engineering solutions must integrate both social and technical elements. This is a theme across our entire Integrated Engineering major and is of particular relevance for students interested in biomedical applications.
