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.  

Biomedical Engineers may have job responsibilities such as designing new medical monitoring, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, specifying setting-up and maintaining biomedical equipment, evaluating the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of equipment.

UTAR Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Biomedical Engineering 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.
