Bioengineering is an integrated field of study between sciences and engineering with the goal to provide technologies that can advance medical practices. The broad spectrum of medical technology requires a multidisciplinary approach encompassing topics ranging from medical science, natural sciences (physics, chemistry and biology) to engineering (mechanical, electrical and electronics, materials, computer, etc) in order to reach innovative solutions to existing problems.
In this light, the Department of Bioengineering – a basic/applied/medical sciences integrative graduate program – was established to carry out innovative biomedical related research at the graduate level. In addition, the department aims to nurture creative researchers who can contribute to the advancement of medical technology and prospective leaders of the medical industry.
This graduate program is divided into three specialized tracks (1. Medical Imaging and Medical Physics, 2. Medical Devices, 3. Biomaterials), with appropriate courses and education programs, including a core basic course to experience the engineering aspect of clinical medicine.
Its goal is to cultivate people who have various medical and basic science and engineering knowledge to lead the cutting edge medical science industry in the future.
