Biomedical Engineering, as an academic field of study, is a combination of many disciplines, which include basic sciences such as mathematics, physics and chemistry, as well as both applied medical and engineering sciences. The medical side is represented by the diagnostic and therapeutic clinical applications. However, the engineering side is an applied analytical science that is responsible for innovating solutions to technical medical problems. Medical engineering, therefore, starts by analysing and studying medical problems, and ends by in-depth sciences that design and innovate the technical system as a solution to the medical problem. Therefore, technical subjects such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, statistics, programming, functional physiology, physiology of the vital organs and functional anatomy, which are considered fundamental sciences in Biomedical Engineering, must be studied. On the other hand, specialised subjects such as medical electronics, medical diagnostic systems, diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices, prosthetics, rehabilitation, biomedical control, biomechanics, hospital engineering and medical safety systems must also be studied.
The Faculty of Medical Engineering consists, from a scientific point of view, of the following departments:
- Basic Sciences
- Medical Electronics
- Medical Informatics
- Medical Equipment and Hospitals Engineering
- Biomedical Sciences
