About the Program
The Biomedical Engineering (BME)
Department is committed, through close partnership with the community by
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.
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:
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
Preparing graduates who are capable of pursuing
postgraduate studies and research.
Prepare graduates who can demonstrate their effective
communication and teamwork skills in a diverse environment with an integrative
perspective to solving biomedical engineering problems.
Prepare graduates who are motivated to pursue life-long
learning and understanding contemporary issues at the interface of biomedical
sciences, engineering, and the society.
