Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (BBEng) UNIVERSITI MALAYA

Sempena cuti sekolah ni, ramai sungguh yang datang bertandang ke Department kami, so, nak bagi lah sedikit info kat cikgu-cikgu  yang organize lawatan tu at least dapat gambaran awal sebelum datang melawat.

sedikit sebanyak info mengenai Biomedical engineering, kalo nak dapat detail maklumat, boleh masuk ke web:

Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (BBEng)

Biomedical Engineering involves the application of the latest advances in engineering and scientific knowledge for biomedical use. Our undergraduate programme prepares students for positions in biomedical engineering industries or to pursue advanced postgraduate studies. During the first and second years of study, you will focus upon core electrical and mechanical engineering and biology-based topics giving you a firm foundation upon which to build the rest of your degree program. To enhance your soft skills a Critical Thinking and Communication course is provided all students.

The third year moves engineering topics to a more advanced level as well as incorporating an industrial placement module, bringing both a higher level of practical expertise and engineering exposure which will benefit students throughout the rest of the programme and in their future careers. Prior to industrial placement, students have an opportunity to interact with medical specialists at the University of Malaya Medical Centre that adds further depth to their work. This provides student an opportunity to suggest solutions to overcome the problem faced by UMMC.

The final year is dominated by the final year thesis project and elective topics. The elective components permit students to shape their own direction as preparation for a future career. Due to diverse specialties of our lecturers, students have opportunity to specialize in a wide range of fields. At the end of the thesis project, the students are obliged to present and defend their project. The Department organizes visits to industry every year to expose students to a commercial working environment. There are also lectures from the industry in every semester to enable students to hear first hand from prominent biomedical engineers.
