Biomedical Engineering Program
The Biomedical Engineering Program aims to provide students with knowledge and training for the modeling, design and construction of biomedical systems and devices by focusing on: computer based data acquisition and monitoring systems, modeling and simulation of physiological systems, and analysis of bioelectric, biomechanical and biological control systems. Students develop cross-disciplinary abilities to integrate engineering techniques with biomedical sciences. To achieve this goal, Biomedical Engineering Program involves close collaboration with the electrical-electronics engineering, computer engineering and mechanical engineering programs. The program covers fundamental topics of electrical and electronics engineering along with core biomedical engineering courses on systems physiology, biomaterials, biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, biosignal processing, medical imaging and bioinformatics. Students acquire hands-on experience through laboratory work and are also required to complete a graduation project related to the current practices in these areas. The program also includes technical elective courses as well as complementary and non-technical elective courses, which provide interdisciplinary knowledge and professional skills.
