Master in Biomedical Engineering


Programme Description

The program's educational objectives of biomedical engineering are to integrate engineering and life science principles into a comprehensive curriculum, that prepares students for entry into the doctoral program, biomedical industry, or professional school. Primary research areas are biomedical imaging, biomedical implants and devices, cardiac electrophysiology, multi-scale computational modelling, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

The program provides graduates with a rigorous, broad-based advanced education in engineering coupled with applied biology that will prepare graduates for the many diverse career opportunities of biomedical engineering. Provide an empowering professional degree for students who intend to become practicing engineers.

Programme Prerequisites

The applicant is admitted in compliance with the Georgian Legislation.

Spheres of Employment

Organizations and companies which perform: improve equipment, such as heart valves and artificial limbs as well as contribute to developing various medical devices such as heart pacemakers. They may research with scientists, chemists, and physicians in hospitals and universities. They also help maintain and monitor complex medical systems while working in hospitals. Enormous job opportunities in varied spheres like medical equipment manufacturing, orthopedic and rehabilitation engineering, molecular, cellular and tissue engineering in public and incorporate sectors are available for the biomedical engineers. They can also be absorbed in hospitals to provide valuable advice on the status of medical equipment.

Biomedical engineers can also employ themselves in research activities by working harmoniously with doctors in the field of computational mechanics, physiology, medicine and invent cutting-edge technology.
