PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The BME program at BUET aims to produce world-class biomedical engineers who use their mathematics, science, biology, medicine, and engineering knowledge to solve real-world problems. Our undergraduate students will be able to perform cutting-edge research and develop innovative technologies to improve the quality of life for the general population. With a core foundation in math, science, biology, medicine, and engineering, the BME graduates of BUET will apply their skills in different challenging problems in their chosen domains. Our graduates will be innovative, adaptable, and critical thinkers and be able to solve problems in medical diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and biotech industries and perform research and development. Our students will also demonstrate strong leadership and will be trained to be socially and ethically responsible. They will operate effectively in multidisciplinary environments, as team members or individuals, and communicate well in both oral and written form. Finally, they will realize the value of continuous learning and self-improvement and thus keep growing in their knowledge throughout their careers.

BME VISION

Become a leading department for producing world-class biomedical engineers and performing research and innovation to improve human health and well-being.

BME MISSION
