Aims & Characteristics

Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims

The programme has the following aims:

(a) to nurture professionals and specialists with professional competence, strategic thinking and lifelong learning capability in the biomedical engineering field;

(b) to provide students with the modern engineering knowledge and advanced technology tools necessary for biomedical engineering practice; and

(c) to equip students with critical thinking and problem-solving skills in the biomedical engineering field through high-quality education.

 

Characteristics

The Biomedical Engineering award adopts an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. Students from different disciplines are grouped and guided to work on assigned clinical problems. This ensures that our subjects are clinically relevant and technically practical, fosters a team spirit, and equips graduates with the skills necessary to work in multidisciplinary teams.

Student Message

Student Message


Keen to expand my multi-disciplinary knowledge to the biomedical domain, I enrolled in the MSc in Biomedical Engineering at PolyU. This programme enriched my knowledge of engineering and broadened my horizons in the biomedical field. Moreover, the programme completely changed my mindset regarding learning.

 

The interdisciplinary coursework and research-oriented learning required by this programme necessitated hard work and made me consider everything critically. I realised that when I did not think too much about the future, slowed my pace a little, and just focused on what I needed to do day by day, I could see the “bigger picture”. I learned that life is not guaranteed and that we should enjoy every moment.

 

After graduating from the MSc BME, I worked as a project assistant in my department, and will enrol in a chiropractic programme in 2021. PolyU’s MSc programme was a wonderful journey in my life, which not only equipped me with interdisciplinary knowledge but also paved the way for the development of my future career.

I consider myself very lucky to have enrolled in the MSc BME programme offered by the Department of Biomedical Engineering at PolyU. This programme greatly broadened my knowledge in the field. The skills and knowledge I gained are very useful for my career development. The programme provides multidisciplinary courses, including biomaterials, nanobiotechnology, neuroimaging, biomechanics, and rehabilitation, as well as experimental skills that can help students to conduct research and complete tasks in the fields of material science, clinical and medical engineering, tissue engineering, etc.

 

Not only was the course content informative, but our teachers were also very professional, kind, and patient, teaching us the content in ways that were easy to understand. On campus, we met international students from all over the world. Thus, we not only improves our academic standing but also made friends from other cultures. This programme was definitely a wonderful journey for me. The many kind people I met, from professors to classmates, have always stayed in my mind.

 

I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to enrol in the MSc BME at PolyU. This programme shaped a fantastic future for me!
