Biomedical Engineering is a multi-disciplinary program integrating engineering activities with basic medical knowledge of human physiology and an understanding of how it functions to assist healthcare providers in supplying better care and treatment to patients through the use of technology.
During the 21st century, various advances in the field of medicine have been made, such as diagnostics devices, therapeutic devices, medical robotic, medical imaging, rehabilitation engineering, life support systems, biomaterials and tissue engineering. Advances in technology for the need to find cure, promote well-being and build healthy communities make Biomedical Engineers one of the most in-demand positions for the healthcare industries, which is one of the world’s largest industrial sectors with a turnover approaching more than 20 billion USD per annum and an expanding rate of 9% per annum.
To keep updated in healthcare services and solutions, advanced techniques like AI, machine learning and Big Data are integrated into this program. Students are also encouraged to join overseas exchange programs, cooperative education and pursue the 4+1 track of the master degree program.
Upon completion, graduates will be able to invent new biomedical instruments and select new technologies that are necessary and suitable in servicing, maintenance and application of medical devices. Potential career paths include:
