The Department of Biomedical Engineering, which approaches the fields of medicine and health with its engineering vision, is one of the departments with the brightest future and the highest business potential both in our country and in the world. Biomedical Engineers work with doctors to find solutions to clinical problems and develop medical equipment and devices. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for medical technologies once again reveals the importance of Biomedical Engineering.
The aim of the Biomedical Engineering program, which hosts academics that are experts in their fields, have overseas experience, have industry experience, and have participated in many projects actively, is to educate biomedical engineers who has fundamental knowledge and skill set of their fields, who adopt the universal laws of science and education, who follow the technological innovations, who are realists and have excellent ability to think analytically, who have strong theoretical and practical background and who are able to make difference.
In the first two years of our program, students receive basic science courses such as math, physics, chemistry and biology, as well as computer programming, electrical circuits, electrical circuits laboratory, microprocessor and embedded systems, and the basic subjects of Biomedical Engineering. Starting with the third year, as vocational courses dominate their curriculum, students get to know various fields of study and application areas of Biomedical Engineering and can specialize in one of them.
Graduates of Biomedical Engineering Department can work in hospitals and health centers, electronics, materials and robot industry R&D laboratories, or biomedical equipment companies. They also have the opportunity to make a career in academic institutions.
