Biomedical engineers are qualified to analyse and solve problems in health care using a combination of engineering and biological perspectives. Hence, they have an understanding of the special difficulties of working with living systems and are able to create and evaluate a range of possible solutions. Biomedical engineers are trained in analytic and synthetic methods of physics and chemistry, mathematics and computing science, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. They are also well versed in medical and biological basic knowledge and know the rules and standards of professional conduct.
The multidisciplinary nature of the Master’s programme in Biomedical Engineering adds significantly to employment possibilities in both research and management-oriented jobs. Industry, research agencies, hospitals, universities and government organizations dealing with health-related products and services are potential employers. Biomedical engineers may contribute to research, to engineering design and product development, or to business aspects of engineering and technical management. They are also experts who may advise on the development of long-term strategies and policies in the field of medical life sciences.
Requirements for admission to the Master’s programme in Biomedical Engineering include:
