Department of Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a discipline in which engineering science and technology are applied to problems in biology and medicine. It covers a wide spectrum of activities including the development of advanced micro-/nano-technologies and biomaterials for improved implantable medical devices; the engineering of molecular, cellular, and tissue approaches and constructs; and the enhancement and application of medical instrumentation and imaging technologies. Ultimately, these advances have significant potential for advancing scientific understanding of the human body and disease, for the development of advanced medical devices such as artificial organs and limbs, and for the overall improvement of human health.

The demand for biomedical engineers in the UAE and the region continues to expand in alignment with the growth of the medical industry, health care, and hospital facilities. Biomedical Engineering graduates will have opportunities both for employment in established biomedical companies and for entrepreneurial endeavours. They are well prepared for advanced educational opportunities in both masters and doctoral programs as well as in professional degrees including the Medical Doctor (MD) and the Masters in Public Health (MPH).
