Program Description: 

This discipline is an integration of Engineering, Basic Sciences, Medicine and Biology . It attempts to bridge toward modern technology while studying the principles and functions of living systems and applying biological and physiological data on the human body ,.Biomedical Engineering plays a significant role in different areas such as Biomedical Instrumentation, Modeling and Controlling Biologic Systems, Processing of Biologic Signals and Medical Images, Robotics in Medical Design, Neural Networks, Modeling of the Structure and Human Brain Functions, Rehabilitation Engineering and Artificial Organs.

Objectives:

   The main objective of this discipline is to educate and train bioelectrical engineering specialists as a member of clinical research and education centers or hospitalsandto enable them to evaluate, select and observe the implementation of the following for clinical research and optimal application of medical equipmentin clinical diagnosis and therapy:

  • Evaluation, selection and application of new technological systems
  • Management of preventive maintenance and  repair of medical equipments
  • Applied education of medical staff in clinics and hospitals
  • Administration of technical hospital information system  and collaborating with physicians, technicians and nurses
  • Standardization of applied medical engineering systems 
  • Advancing the qualitative and quantitative aspects of patients diagnosis and therapy
  • Provision of related  expert and consulting  services  for the medical staff in hospitals and health centers 
  • performing advanced research in medical and engineering fields in order to develop new methods and techniques for  design and production of medical diagnostic and therapeutic devices

At the end of the program learners will be competent in the following skills: Graduates would have the precise andup- to- date knowledge of almost alldiagnostic andtherapeutic bioelectrical devicesfor:   

  • teaching theoretical and applied courses to medical andbiomedical engineering students  and hospital staff 
  • supervising biomedical engineering department in a hospital and cooperating with hospital management on the following issues: 
  • purchasing and installing new medical devices 
  • performing periodic safety checks  
  • maintaining and repairing medical devices 
  • conducting research in biomedical engineering science and technology
