History and Overview

​​​The Biomedical Engineering (BMEN)​ program was officially established in 2015. The birth of the BMEN program stemmed from a pressing need to formally train high caliber graduate engineers to be proficient in the languages and methods of the biomedical/clinical science and engineering disciplines, which are required to tackle the health and medical challenges locally, in the region and beyond. 

The BMEN program​ is currently comprised of four core faculty members, as well as affiliated faculty members from several departments in MSFEA and FM. The program hosts state of the art lab facilities, including: cell culture with fluidFM technology, electrophysiology and neural engineering, as well as an animal experimental surgical facility and micro & nano fabrication lab (due for completion December 2018). The BMEN program also makes use of facilities across other departments in MSFEA and FM, providing students with all the resources and expertise required to achieve their scholarly objectives.​
