Stemmed from the “Biomedical Engineering Programme” within Jockey Club Rehabilitation Engineering Centre (JCREC) founded in 1987, the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (BME at PolyU) was established in 2012 with its vision to be world-class in the advancement of biomedical engineering education, research, and professional services for the betterment of human health.

Developed from the original focus on prosthetics and orthotics, BME at PolyU now covers a convergence of diverse disciplines within biology, medicine, and engineering, including medical imaging, biosensing, molecular and cellular engineering, neuromusculoskeletal science, prosthetics and orthotics, and rehabilitation. Being the first-in-Hong Kong, the BME undergraduate programme has been accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and by the International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) for the P&O stream. In addition, the Department offers taught postgraduate programme (MSc) as well as research programmes (MPhil and PhD).
