About this program

Biomedical Engineering (Bachelor)

The practice of biomedical engineering has a long history. One of the earliest examples is a wood and leather prosthetic toe found on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy. Before that, even simple crutches and walking sticks were a form of engineered assistive devices, and the first person to fashion a splint for a broken bone could be considered to have been an early biomedical engineer. 

Biomedical engineers are employed in the industry, in hospitals, in research facilities of educational and medical institutions, in teaching, and in government regulatory agencies. They often serve a coordinating or interfacing function, using their background in both engineering and medical fields. In industry, they may create designs where an in-depth understanding of living systems and of technology is essential.

They may be involved in performance testing of new or proposed products. Government positions often involve product testing and safety, as well as establishing safety standards for devices.

In the hospital, the biomedical engineer may provide advice on the selection and use of medical equipment, as well as supervising its performance testing and maintenance.

They may also build customized devices for special health care or research needs.

In research institutions, biomedical engineers supervise laboratories and equipment, and participate in or direct research activities in collaboration with other researchers with such backgrounds as medicine, physiology, and nursing.

Some biomedical engineers are technical advisors for marketing departments of companies and some are in management positions. Some biomedical engineers also have advanced training in other fields. For example, many biomedical engineers also have an M.D. degree, thereby combing an understanding of advanced technology with direct patient care or clinical research.

Admission requirements

Program content

The first two years are designed to ensure that all students achieve a common breadth and depth of knowledge. You will also follow a module developing your design skills and professional practice. At the end of the second year you will have a broad knowledge base which will provide a platform for specialisation.

In the third and fourth years, you choose modules tailored to your interests and can specialise in one of four pathways:

  • Bioengineering
  • Electrical Bioengineering
  • Mechanical Bioengineering
  • Computational Bioengineering

Scholarships & funding

All prospective international students are granted a 75% tuition fee scholarship. 

There is a huge range of scholarship opportunities available for our prospective international students across the world, ranging from partial scholarships which cover some tuition fees, to full scholarships which cover the duration of your studies. The majority of scholarships cover tuition fees only.
There are also many different types of scholarships for international students from certain regions, or even students studying in a certain field.

Program delivery

Fall Semester; 10st October 2022


The  tution fee is 2300.00 USD after scholarship


Students who study biomedical engineering with our university will learn to pair biology with engineering to design medical devices and therapies. Students will plan experiments and analyze and interpret data, and they will use engineering principles to judge the results of their work. Biomedical engineering requires collaboration, therefore we teach our students the importance of working in teams to come up with the best solutions to problems.

The program has been approved by Higher Education Council following the European directive on mutual recognition of professional qualifications —enabling our graduates to apply for recognition of their degree anywhere in the European Union

Continuing studies

  • Ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex biomedical engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics
  • Ability to apply biomedical engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration for public health, safety, and welfare as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in biomedical engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  •  Ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create collaborative, and inclusive environment establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • Ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions.
  • Ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies. 

Career paths

  • Bioinstrumentation is the application of electronics and measurement principles and techniques to develop devices used in diagnosis and treatment of disease.
  • Biomechanics is the mechanics applied to biological or medical problems. It includes the study of motion, of material deformation, of flow within the body and in devices and transport of chemical constituents across biological and synthetic media and membranes.
  • Biomaterials describes both living tissue and materials used for implantation. Understanding the properties of the living material is vital in the design of implant materials.
  • Systems physiology is the term used to describe that aspect of biomedical engineering in which engineering strategies, techniques and tools are used to gain a comprehensive and integrated understanding of the function of living organisms ranging from bacteria to humans. Modeling is used in analysis of experimental data and in formulating mathematical descriptions of physiological events.
  • Clinical engineering is the application of technology for health care in hospitals. The clinical engineer is a member of the health care team along with physicians, nurses and other hospital staff. Clinical engineers are responsible for developing and maintaining computer database of medical instrumentation and equipment records and for the purchase and use of supplicated medical instruments.
  • Rehabilitation engineering is a new and growing specialty area of biomedical engineering. Rehabilitation engineers expand capabilities and improve the quality of life for individuals with physical impairments.

here are some other career opptions that as a graduate each student maybe able to persue

  • Bio-medical Engineer
  • Instrument Engineer
  • Installation Engineer
  • Researcher
  • Maintenance Engineer
