Department of Biomedical Engineering
What is Biomedical Engineering?
The main focus of biomedical engineering is to apply scientific and engineering principles to the grand area of biomedicine for the improvement of clinical diagnosis, therapy, daily health care and overall well-being of humans. The biomedical engineering also provides tools and solutions for fundamental researches in biomedicine.
Biomedical engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field; it requires students to have both general knowledge and professional forte for the job market. Through a flexible curriculum design, we encourage students to develop their expertise according to their own interests As the human centric nature of biomedicine is, all our graduates are expected to be competent, enthusiastic, and confident with a broad humanistic mind.
