Course Description

Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering science and technology to the solution of problems in medicine and biology. It is also crucial in the design and development of medical equipment, connected health system and IT solution in the Healthcare Industries. Some of the applications include designing and producing artificial prosthesis and organs.

This programme aims to produce biomedical engineering graduates in engineering design; biomedical treatment (engineering) and diagnostics; mathematical modelling; computational techniques and programming which include web and database skills and bioformatics; biomedical signal processing; medical imaging; biomechanics and biomaterials and biology for biomedical engineering applications in the clinical and healthcare industries.
