MS Bio-medical Engineering Biomedical Engineering (BME) department, Faculty of Engineering & Applied Sciences (FEAS), Riphah International University (RIU) is presently the only department in the North area which is running a PEC accredited BS Biomedical Engineering program. The department is planning to launch its MS Program. The emphasis of this program will not only be on the prospective students with engineering specialization but also to broaden the range of intake by accepting applicants with non-engineering qualification such as MSc Mathematics, Physics, Computer Sciences and Electronics.

The curriculum is designed in such a way that it will equip the students with the modern requirements of the market that includes both academia and industry. The students will also be directed to a specific theme by considering the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student. In this regard, a research project will be assigned to them during the second semester of the program. This will also better utilize and evaluate the interest and expertise of the students, which they can later adopt as their field of specialization.

The duration, courses and credit hours are aligned with the rules and regulations laid down by the HEC.

Post graduate study in Bio-medical Engineering

Not a single bio-medical device has ever been developed without an extensive multidisciplinary collaboration but, nevertheless, a wide gap exists between different themes applied to bio-medical engineering such as physics, mathematics, nanotechnology, bio-mechanics and bio-materials.

It is extremely important in a country like Pakistan that has an enormous number of graduates having a degree in Physics, Mathematics, Computer sciences and Electronics to be given an opportunity of applying their extensive knowledge in the relevant fields to solve problems encountered in the vast field of health care technology. This would not only help such students to increase the range of their expertise and job prospects but also the biomedical engineering field itself would benefit from such a rich integration.

It is the lack of researchers and research groups, which has not yet ignited the flame of genuine research in the area of biomedical engineering in Pakistan. This post graduate program would help increase the number of quality graduates, who can really contribute to establish a national biomedical engineering research platform and build strength to compel government for making a law that every hospital in Pakistan must have a biomedical engineering department.
