Junior Year

    • Year 1 subjects provide students with foundation knowledge in engineering technology.
    • Year 2 subjects further establish students’ foundation knowledge in related engineering areas and establish students’ foundation knowledge in health science areas such as anatomy and physiology.
    • The programme has two streams: Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Biomedical Engineering with Prosthetics and Orthotics (BME with P&O). Each student can select one stream according to their interests and strengths. The indication of the stream will be requested at the end of Year 2.
Senior year 478x373

Senior Year

    • Year 3 subjects further strengthen students’ knowledge of biomedical engineering, give them the opportunity to combine biomedical and engineering aspects such as in laboratory and design, and develop their ability in critical inquiry and thinking. One unique feature of our programme is that students take the subject Biomedical Engineering Research and Design Studies for four consecutive semesters in Year 2 and Year 3, which gives them the opportunity to integrate biomedical science with engineering. Students can start to take BME and P&O Electives on different topics according to their streams.
    • Year 4 includes advanced and applied biomedical engineering subjects and a Capstone Project. Students further take BME & P&O Electives according to their streams.
    • Biomedical engineering industrial internship/clinical attachments are arranged during the summer semester to broaden students’ experience in the field.
