Overview

Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary specialty that applies engineering principles to solve clinical problems. This discipline commonly deals with medical therapies, monitoring devices, and diagnostic tools. 

On successful completion of the MSc Biomedical Engineering Society at Nazarbayev University ,  graduates will be able to:

  • Integrate life sciences and engineering for research, development and innovation with the aim to enhance human health.
  • To evaluate ideas, models and hypotheses using appropriate experimental, mathematical and statistical approaches.
  • Master multiple instrumental, computational and biological techniques for experimentation and modeling.
  • Think critically with the ability to appropriately analyze data originating from experiments and simulations, and to draw justifiable conclusions
  • Recognize ethical issues, consider multiple points of view, and use critical ethical reasoning to determine the appropriate behavior to follow in the practice of biomedical engineering.
  • Communicate effectively individually as well as in the team environment

Work after graduation

Once you have the MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering, there is a multitude of job opportunities. 

For example, in the medical device industry, as a development engineer, or as a quality-management engineer. For example, you could work on the manufacture and further development of pace-makers, intraocular lenses, or endovascular stents. Alternatively, you could work for the government in a so-called Regulatory Agency which regulates the admission of new medicine and medical devices onto the market. 

You can also start your own business, e.g. the production and market-launch of a medical device. You could also pursue a career in academia, e.g. start a PhD research project, work as a postdoctoral researcher at one or more foreign universities, and become an (assistant or associate) Professor.
