About the Department
Our vision includes innovative and quality in biomedical engineering applicable education and research at the German Jordanian University.
Utilizing the German dimension equipping the students with a solid biomedical engineering knowledge base, advancing the German Jordanian University through applied biomedical scientific research, and linking the university with biomedical industry by keeping up to date with current developments in the BME field in the local and international markets. In addition to serving the BME profession and the different BME related healthcare facilities through the academic advancement and skill development of BME students, as well as, technology transfer to industry and continuous workforce training in Jordan and Germany.
Biomedical Engineering program emphasizes the application of technologies and tools in the short term, and the ability to discover, acquire, and adapt new knowledge and skills in the long term, such that our graduates are prepared to:
- Perform Advanced studies leading to research or professional practice in the Health and Medical Sciences.
- Apply the knowledge and skills in biomedical engineering industries or related technical and professional fields available in Jordan and at our partners in Germany.
- Apply quantitative, analytical, software and hardware methods which help in better understanding of basic biological processes and to develop innovative techniques for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases.
- Create an excellence in undergraduate education, meaningful and innovative research, and service dedicated to advancing the field of Biomedical Engineering.
Program Learning Outcomes:

Track 1: Biomedical Instrumentation Engineering (New Track starting first 2023/2024)
Biomedical instrumentation is a subdiscipline within Biomedical Engineering. It focusses on methods and devices for performing measurements on biological systems, methods to evaluate these measurements and methods and equipment for performing various treatment to these systems. It embraces sensor technology, analog and digital electronic systems for acquisition, storage, visualization, and analysis of physiological signals (e.g., ECG, EEG, blood pressure, O2 saturation) and medical images (e.g., diagnostic ultrasound) as well as mechanical and electrical instrumentation aiding in therapies and interventions (e.g., pacemakers, hemodialysis, oxygen therapy).
Track 2: Bionic and Biomechanical Engineering (New Track starting first 2023/2024)
“Bionics” is the branch of Biomedical Engineering that brings the worlds of biology and electronics together. it includes the development of neural prostheses that address a range of sensory and neurological disorders, through artificial stimulation of neurons. In addition, Bionics Engineering studies and develops mechanical systems that accurately mimic living organisms function or parts. Biological structures, methods, and systems are applied to the design of engineering systems and modern technologies. The inspiration for bionic engineering comes from the observation that evolutionary pressures force biological organisms to adapt and develop structures and processes which possess the optimal efficiency for survival.it is an interdisciplinary field that combines engineering and life sciences.
