About the Program
Biomedical (BM) engineering is a discipline engineering department that uses knowledge of biology, physics and medicine to improve human health. It is the integration between the engineering sciences and the biomedical sciences considering the implementation of the clinical practice. A biomedical engineer typically is able to perform the following:
- Modelling the physiological phenomena, which are, in general, nonlinear, non-stationary and non-deterministic.
- Analyzing and processing of data which originate from the human body and which incorporate spatial or temporal patterns indicative for diagnostic purposes.
- Physiological Measurements to assess physiological functions, for use in research as well as in clinical practice;
- Optimising the Design of Biomedical Devices that improves the medical practice and health care delivery. These devices should take into consideration the characteristics and Materials of human organs. Also, these devices could be used to control, diagnose and treat parts of the human body which are not functioning properly.
The duration of the progra is four academic years (eight semesters), and this is a double-degree program, graduates will be awarded a Bachelor Degree of Science in Biomedical Engineering from both UoD and THM as well as transcripts.
The student has to pay $ 4000 annually; (the study in this department is four years). These fees might be amended annually based on the circumstance in the Kurdistan Region-Iraq.
