Health care providers continue to rely on the best available technology to help their patients.  In a time of specialization, there is an increasing need for engineers who can design, operate, and maintain advanced and reliable equipment.  CITYU Biomedical Engineering graduates can join the work force in the health care facilities specifying and maintaining equipment used by hospitals and health care practitioners. CITYU students receive basic Engineering training as Electronics and Computers Engineers.  Their curriculum is complemented with insight on Biochemistry, Biophysics Transport Phenomena in the human body as well as Preventative Maintenance and best practices of equipment usage. Biomedical Engineering courses familiarize students to the hospital environment and allow them to become leaders in their continuously evolving field.

Curriculum for the (B.Sc.)

Total credit hours for a Bachelor Degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering are 105 credit hours.
