Biomedical engineering is a new emerging discipline where engineering principles and techniques are applied to medical and science fields.
This is achieved by bringing together the design and problem-solving skills of engineering and mathematical disciplines with medical and biological sciences to further design and develop medical devices. The application of these devices in turn also can help developing a better understanding of biological phenomena, processes, diagnosis and treatment. The applications of biomedical engineering have expanded over a wide range such as biocompatible prosthesis, medical and biomedical devices, bioimplants, etc.
As a result, it is clear this area of research is interdisciplinary in nature and should not be bounded by a specific school or faculty. Rather it is an umbrella of knowledge that spans over a number of faculties boundary and has a shade area that is function of the number of members and the diversity of their research area.
Specific targeted areas of research covered by this group, but are not limited to:
- Biomedical Signal Processing
- Orthopaedic Biomechanics
- Spinal Biomechanics
- Cardiovascular Engineering
- Neural Networks and their Application to Biomedical Problems
- Biofluid Mechanics
- Wavelet Transforms in Biomedical Engineering
- PhD and Masters Degrees by Research
