Program Structure

       The International B.Eng. in Biomedical Engineering program (BME) is a full-time 4-year course. It is suitable for students who are seeking to develop their practical engineering skills related to the design and development of solutions directed towards healthcare applications.
       The BME program offers lecture courses and hands-on practical laboratories and projects covering a range of engineering disciplines focused on medical, pharmaceutical, and biological sciences. Students study fundamental mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology subjects in the first year before focusing on more detailed engineering concepts in the second year. In the third year, students can choose one from six tracks, each of which has different emphasis.
       Track 1-3 are taught at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at KMITL, track 4-5 are in conjunction with the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Dentistry at KMITL, respectively, and track 6 is exclusively a dual degree program with University of Glasgow.
1. Biomedical Instrumentation (BMI)
       BMI has an emphasis on the maintenance and calibration of medical devices, device administration, and device design and development. Suitable for students interested in electronic and mechanical engineering.
2. Healthcare Information Technology (HIT)
       HIT has an emphasis on the storage, retrieval, and analysis of hospital information including data networking, signal and image processing, healthcare robot, healthcare drone, and healthcare smart home. Suitable for students interested in maths, programming, and software engineering.
3. Biopharmaceutical Engineering (BPHARM)
       BPHARM has an emphasis on the application of chemical and bioengineering to the development of medicines, biological tissues, biosensors, and bioinformatics amongst others. Suitable for students interested in chemical and bioengineering.
4. Pre-medicine (PMED)
       PMED has an emphasis on preparing students to enter the Medicine program at the Faculty of Medicine at KMITL. Following the first 3 years of studies at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, students will continue their studies at the Faculty of Medicine for another 5 years with a unique set of biomedical engineering skills to broaden their study experiences with an opportunity to pursue two degrees from both engineering and medicine. Students with GPA > 3.5 after the first three years and IELTS of 7.0 are eligible to apply for this track.
5. Pre-dentistry (PDENT)
       PDENT has an emphasis on preparing students to enter the Dentistry program at the Faculty of Dentistry at KMITL. Following the first 3 years of studies at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, students will continue their studies at the Faculty of Dentistry for another 5 years with a unique set of biomedical engineering skills to broaden their study experiences with an opportunity to pursue two degrees from both engineering and dentistry. Students with GPA > 3.5 after the first three years and IELTS of 7.0 are eligible to apply for this track.
6. Dual Degree Program with University of Glasgow (Glasgow)
       The Glasgow track offers students an ideal opportunity to study at an internationally renowned institution. Following the first 2 years of studies at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, students will gain overseas experiences from the international environment and exposure to state-of-the-art technology by spending another 2 years of studies at the University of Glasgow. After completing all the requirements, students will be conferred double degrees from both KMITL and University of Glasgow. Students with GPA > 3.25 after their first and second years and IELTS of 6.5 are qualified for this track.
