Department of Biomedical Engineering

About Department


BS Biomedical Engineering is a multi-disciplinary bachelor’s degree program which is approved by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) in addition to approval granted by the honorable Governor Punjab being the Chancellor of the University. The BS biomedical engineering program at HITEC University aims to bridge the gap between engineering and medical sciences. It aims to improve the present health care system ranging from diagnosis tools, patient monitoring to therapeutic plans and drug design. The major aim of this program is therefore to impart appropriate engineering knowledge to students thereby enabling them to skillfully tackle any problem related to health care.

The curriculum is in line with the requirements of PEC and is comprehensive enough to meet all challenges and requirements of the field of biomedical engineering both locally and globally. The program is intended to train the students to take up any role in a variety of fields including industry, government, academia, hospitals, and R&D organizations. It includes areas of study such as Electronics and Instrumentation, Signal Processing and Control, Biomedical Physics and Bioinformatics, Biomaterials, Physiology, Biochemistry and Anatomy and Computer Sciences. The Biomedical Engineering program spans over eight semesters (four years) and the degree of BS Biomedical Engineering is conferred upon students after demonstrating satisfactory performance in the allocated credit hours in addition to completion of hospital/industry internship.

The four-year BS Biomedical Engineering program at HITEC University Taxila provides a comprehensive educational and training experience for students. This includes exposure to theoretical concepts through various courses, hands-on experience in laboratories, engagement in project work, and participation in internship programs. The curriculum is designed based on Outcome-Based Education (OBE) principles and meticulously aligns with the standards established by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). This ensures a well-rounded educational journey that caters to the demands of the biomedical engineering field at both the national and international levels.
