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.
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.
This taught postgraduate programme is an ideal choice for those who wish to pursue advanced education in biomedical engineering. The programme reflects the growing importance of state-of-the-art medical devices and healthcare technology for affordable healthcare. It is designed for engineers, scientists and health professionals who are interested in health technology. We provide students with a broad-based knowledge of advances in biomedical engineering, thus enhancing their ability to develop and apply technologies for health and rehabilitation care.
The programme offers a number of core subjects in Biomedical Engineering, along with other subjects relevant to the health technology and engineering fields. In general, each subject requires one evening class per week over a 13-week semester.
Students should complete 1 Compulsory Subject, 4 Core Subjects, a research-based Dissertation or 3 other Core Subjects, plus 2 other subjects. Students are encouraged to select a dissertation topic that is relevant to their professional and personal interests.
Students who successfully complete 18 credits but decide not to continue with their MSc studies may ask to be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) in Biomedical Engineering if they have successfully completed 1 Compulsory Subject, 4 Core Subjects and 1 Elective Subject.
