About the Program



The Biomedical Engineering (BME) Department is committed, through close partnership with the community by providing 

v  Quality education that prepares graduates through a project-based learning to be professionals and to pursue postgraduate studies and research in the field of biomedical engineering, fully integrating engineering and physical sciences’ methods, tools and practices to solve technical issues related to Biology, Physiology, and Medicine; thus bridging the gap between engineering and medicine. 

v  Quality research that leads to better solutions to biomedical engineering related problems with emphasis on issues of national significance by working closely with industry and research centers for improving human health, health care delivery and the society.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

The program education objectives (PEO) are derived from the mission statement of the Biomedical Engineering Department.  The Department  will prepare competent graduates who are:

v  Prepare technically competent graduate who are proficient to apply knowledge of mathematics, basic sciences, life sciences, engineering, and the humanities to critically solve multidisciplinary problems at the interface of engineering, biology and medicine appropriate to their chosen profession. 

v  Preparing graduates who are capable of pursuing postgraduate studies and research. 

v  Prepare graduates who can demonstrate their effective communication and teamwork skills in a diverse environment with an integrative perspective to solving biomedical engineering problems. 

v  Prepare graduates who are motivated to pursue life-long learning and understanding contemporary issues at the interface of biomedical sciences, engineering, and the society.
