Bachelor of Mechatronics and Biomedical Engineering (BMBE)

The production and health service industry need personnel equipped with knowledge and skills in biomedical, mechanical and electrical engineering, who can design, build, control, and maintain a wide range of engineering processes, products and medical systems, equipment and devices. Mechatronics reflects the integration of mechanical, electrical, electronics and automation. The inclusion of biomedical engineering brings about a unique integration of mechanical, electrical, electronics, physical sciences and Information and Communication Technology (ICT), biological and life sciences with a wide employment opportunity for the graduates.

As the industries and services became more specialized, and the role of the engineer expanded, the need for specialized personnel in the areas of biomedical, electrical, mechanical, and electronics superseded the generality for mechatronics and biomedical engineering. Many Universities in various countries all over the world offer these programmes independently. In modern industry and the health sector there is a high demand for human resource to manage multi-disciplinary automated systems. As a result, programmes in mechatronics and biomedical engineering will go a long way in addressing some of the challenges encountered in the production industry and medical field.
