BSc. Bio Medical Engineering Technology

Biomedical profession has evolved over the years in response to innovations in science and technology. Revolutionary advances in medical imaging and diagnostics have changed the way medicine is practiced. It is expected that the biomedical field will play a critical role in future health care. The multidisciplinary Engineering and Technology skills are integrated with human biology to improve human health. Recently it has been observed that a great demand of biomedical engineers and technologists in the society due to the availability of modern diagnostic equipment and healthcare facilities. In order to provide the required skilled workforce, the Biomedical Engineering Technology Department (BMT) program at Foundation University, Islamabad was established in 2019.

The Department offers a four years degree program in "Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering Technology". The students are provided with an educational foundation that prepares them to choose their career in industry or academia. The current enrolment of the department is 40 students per year.

 

Mission of Biomedical Engineering Technology program:

Our mission is to equip Biomedical Engineering Technology graduates with sound knowledge and skills to cope both individually and as a part of team with the demands of industry and health sector for the betterment of the society.

Program Educational Objectives (POE’s):

The Biomedical Engineering Technology graduates will:

PEO1: Demonstrate ability to apply engineering technology knowledge for analyzing, solving and investigating broadly defined engineering problems using modern tools.

PEO2: Display effective communication skills with the capacity of working individually and as a part of teams for management of engineering technology projects.

PEO3: Exhibit high moral values and ethics along with life-long learning perspective and manifest socially responsible individuals.

 

Program Learning Outcomes (PLO’s):

  • Engineering Technology Knowledge (SA1): An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, Engineering Technology fundamentals and Engineering Technology specialization to defined and applied Engineering Technology procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.
  • Problem Analysis (SA2): An ability to Identify, formulate, research literature and analyze broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to the discipline or area of specialization.
  • Design/Development of Solutions (SA3): An ability to design solutions for broadly- defined Engineering Technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Investigation (SA4): An ability to conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern Tool Usage (SA5): An ability to Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern technology and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The Engineering Technologist and Society (SA6): An ability to demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to Engineering Technology practice and solutions to broadly defined Engineering Technology problems.
  • Environment and Sustainability (SA7): An ability to understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of Engineering Technology work in the solution of broadly defined Engineering Technology problems in societal and environmental contexts.
  • Ethics (SA8): Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of Engineering Technology practice
  • Individual and Team Work (SA9): An ability to Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams.
  • Communication (SA10): An ability to communicate effectively on broadly defined Engineering Technology activities with the Engineering Technologist community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project Management (SA11): An ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Engineering Technology management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member or leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Lifelong Learning (SA12): An ability to recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist Engineering Technologies.
