The recent rapid progress in the natural sciences and in engineering has enabled the use of engineering tools to answer many questions that have troubled humanity since its very beginnings. The Biomedical Engineering program is offered by the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev .

Ultra-fast and ultra-powerful supercomputers, the mapping of the human genome, interfaces that connect directly to the brain, nanotechnology-driven molecular-sized implants, and fast internet-based communication technologies are but a few of the many new technologies that are quickly becoming widely available. 

Program aims

The aim is to train engineers who will be able to conduct – and lead – research and development projects in both the University research environment and the dynamic high-tech world, as well as to develop and provide support for engineering equipment in hospitals. 

Responsibility for training biomedical engineers is shared by the Faculties of Health Sciences and Engineering. Students take courses in both faculties, gaining broad basic knowledge, as well as more specific skills in those areas that are essential for a biomedical engineer. 

Programme Structure

  • The course work is extensive and exacting, since students are required to both acquire a very broad knowledge base for the multi-disciplinary demands of Biomedical Engineering and to develop specific expertise. 
  • In the fourth year, our students undertake directed engineering projects in the research labs of the University, in the high-tech biomedical industry, or in hospitals. During the course of the project, each student masters a specific field of knowledge and then uses it to develop a biomedical engineering application. 
  • To further encourage the development of each student’s specific interests, outstanding students are encouraged to develop their fourth year projects into a larger research project. These students will finish their fourth year with extensive research experience and a command of their selected area of focus.
