Biomedical Engineering is a discipline that uses Engineering principles and quantitative methods to improve and sustain human health. It is based on the integration of the fundamental concepts of Physics, Chemistry and Biology within an Engineering perspective. Specialities include: Neural Engineering, Bioengineering of the Brain, Rehabilitation Engineering, Sensory Communication, Brain-Machine Interface, Biological Signal Processing, Bioinformatics, Medical Imaging (MRI, Ultrasound), Medical Devices, Physiological System Modeling.
The Two Options for Departmental Registration
ECE: The course requirements are the same as in other ECE groups, in that, at least two courses should be taken from those offered by ECE or jointly with other departments. A life science course with relevance to the thesis topic should be included in the required courses. Collaborative Specialization ECE/IBBME: In addition to the above course requirements, the core course BME1450 offered by IBBME should also be included.
