The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MSBME) is the first program of its kind in the GCC. This dynamic, multidisciplinary program will prepare you for advanced careers and/or doctoral studies related to biomedical engineering.
Recent developments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and specifically in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, have increased the need for biomedical engineers. The tremendous rate of population growth in the MENA region is accompanied by a concurrent demand for and growth in healthcare services, such as hospitals, clinics, medical colleges, medical technology suppliers and biomedical engineering, which is reported to be one of the fastest growing engineering discipline worldwide.
Our MSBME program strives to create a stimulating academic environment that promotes excellence in teaching and research, helping its students to become competent, innovative and responsible professionals. Based on high standards similar to those followed in the United States, the MSBME curriculum provides core courses in mathematics, anatomy and physiology, followed by elective courses in several biomedical engineering sub-disciplines, including healthcare management and informatics, biomedical signals and devices, biomaterials and biofluidics.
