Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that produces diagnostic and remedial solutions by applying engineering principles in the fields of medicine and biology. Biomedical engineering makes use of sciences in such scientific fields as electrical and electronics engineering, computer engineering, chemical engineering, mechanics, materials science and technology, chemistry, biology and molecular biology, especially medicine. Biomedical engineers with expertise covering physiology, biology, health and health informatics, mechanics and engineering help to improve the way patients are treated and reduce the cost of care by combining their various skills to create solutions to ongoing health problems around the world.
With the increase in the world population, the demand for biomedical devices and procedures to improve the quality of life continues to increase. Today, people are more aware of the breakthroughs and advances in medical technology than ever before. Due to this awareness, more and more people will continue to search for biomedical solutions to complex he alth problems, expecting a newer, more convenient and more advanced method of treatment each time.
Our students will graduate with the knowledge and skills to demonstrate their qualifications in both the private sector and academia, as they will receive education in medicine and many engineering fields. The qualifications of our students who will graduate are as follows:
1. Development of medical imaging systems and software to have sufficient knowledge,
2. Having the ability to model living organisms with knowledge of human anatomy and physiology,
3. To have the ability to interpret biomedical data and data analyst using tools such as statistical analysis methods, data mining techniques and computer modeling tools,
4. Determine biomedical device design requirements, develop prototypes, test and have the ability to evaluate in terms of safety and effectiveness,
5. Evaluate biomaterial performance, analyze biomaterial-biological system interactions and master biocompatibility criteria,
6. They understand topics such as human experiments, medical data privacy, hospital products and patent rights and know the principles of studying them,
7. Students develop project management and communication skills. To learn to take part in the planning, follow-up and outcome reporting of biomedical projects,
8. Students should become researchers in such a way as to apply their knowledge in electronic, chemical, optical, mechanical, computational and other engineering principles to understand, modify or control biological (i.e. human and animal) systems,
9. The ability to develop, select and use modern techniques and tools necessary for the analysis and solution of complex problems encountered in biomedical engineering applications is the ability to use information technologies effectively.
Our students who will graduate from the Biomedical Engineering program:
1. Industry employment: Graduates of the program can take part in research and development, medical product design, production, maintenance, product quality control, sales and marketing in medical institutions and organizations such as medical device companies, pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies.
2. Research and development (R&D): Graduates can work in research and development positions in academia, government agencies or private research institutions. They can contribute to the development of new medical technologies, design experiments, analyze data and contribute to medical device software.
3. Academic studies: Graduates who have a strong interest in research and a desire to delve deeper in their field can obtain a master's or doctoral degree in biomedical engineering or a related field. This can lead to opportunities for academicism, teaching positions or leadership roles in academia, industry or government-affiliated institutions.
