New academic Tracks under the B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering Program (Study Plan 2023)

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.
