The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) aims to provide world-class education and to conduct research in emerging fields of engineering. To achieve these aims, the Department adopts an interdisciplinary approach and includes subject areas that ensure our graduates are equipped to meet Hong Kong's current and future needs. The Department was established in 2018, following the reorganisation of the former Department of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering.
The Department currently offers a major in Biomedical Engineering. The Department’s faculty members have interdisciplinary backgrounds with academic strengths in areas including (a) biomedical imaging and bioinstrumentation; (b) cell/tissue engineering and biomechanics; (c) robotics and artificial intelligence for biomedical applications; and (d) biosensors and health informatics.
Please refer to the Department's website for more information about the BME Department.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied a science- or engineering-related discipline at a high school or post-secondary institution
have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award in a science- or engineering-related discipline.
Preference will be given to applicants with physics and mathematics backgrounds.
HKDSE students will apply for admission to first-year studies (JS1211) through JUPAS.
This major aims to pursue excellence in education, research and innovation through the fusion of engineering with life sciences for the advancement of human health. The objectives of the major are to provide integrative educational opportunities that allow students to learn passionately, think critically and independently and innovate creatively so that they are:
As a graduate, you will find career opportunities in engineering services, public health consulting, government departments and laboratories and the commercial and educational sectors. Alternately, you can pursue postgraduate studies. This major will provide you with the expertise required to meet the needs of increasing public concern and demands on medical diagnostics and therapeutic treatments, biomedical instruments, food safety and quality, advancement in pharmaceutical and health maintenance products, as well as an awareness for human health and wellness.
