Undergraduate Programme

The aim of the Biomedical Engineering undergraduate degree programme is to produce engineers with a strong foundation in the relevant engineering, sciences and technology, who are able to contribute to the Biomedical Sciences through innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership. Our educational programme in Biomedical Engineering provides an excellent foundation for a range of careers such as research and development, product design and manufacturing in the Biomedical Engineering industries or for further graduate education. At the undergraduate level, the Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a four‐year engineering curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Biomedical Engineering Design‐based and research‐based projects are an integral part of the curriculum. They help to develop the spirit of innovation and inquiry, integrative skills, and critical thinking skills in the students. A portion of the curriculum is also set aside for non- engineering modules in areas such as engineering professionalism and human relations. These are intended to equip our graduates with the knowledge to function effectively in tomorrow’s workplace. v

Below are the some useful links for undergraduate programme.:





Graduate Programme

The Department offers research-based graduate programmes at Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) levels. Our aim is to impart our graduates with:
