Biomedical Engineering is the discipline of applying the quantitative and computational methods of engineering to problems in medicine and biology. It is currently one of the most rapidly growing fields of engineering all over the world. The University, on receiving the gift of LEJ-NED Campus by the Late Mr Latif Ebrahim Jamal, decided to establish a Bio Medical engineering Department there, offering two BE degree programmes – Bio Stream and Medical Stream. The Syndicate in its 134th Meeting held on 29-9-2004 approved the concept paper presented.
The Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and techniques to medicine, biology, behavior, and health. It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering, with the medical, physical, chemical, biological and computational sciences to help improve patient health care and the quality of life of individuals.
It advances fundamental concepts; creates knowledge from the molecular to the organ systems level; and develops innovative biologics, materials, processes, implants, devices and informatics approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, for patient rehabilitation, and health improvement..
