The graduate program in Biomedical Engineering from METU Middle East Technical University is a joint interdisciplinary program of the following departments: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Statistics, Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Engineering Sciences, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Informatics Institute.


Key Features

Biomedical Engineering integrates biological, chemical, physical, mathematical, computational sciences with engineering principles and techniques to apply to the problems in the medical field. The main purpose of the field is to improve patient health care and the quality of life for healthy individuals. Therefore, it advances fundamental concepts and creates knowledge from the molecular to the organ systems levels. 

The broad research and development array of the biomedical engineering area consists of medical imaging, image processing, physiological signal processing, synthesis and design of biocompatible prostheses, medical devices, material-cell interactions, nano-patterned surfaces, biosensors, biocompatibility, tissue engineering, mechanical analysis of locomotion and movement, cell and tissue mechanics, mechanical characterization and identification of biological materials, biomechanical modeling and simulation, biostatics and biodynamics of solids and fluids, biomolecular systems, genome assembly, protein structure and alignment, prediction of gene expression, etc.

This Biomedical Engineering program from METU Middle East Technical University is open to the students with an undergraduate degree from departments of science, medicine, and, engineering. Graduates might be required by the Admission Committee to take preparatory courses for a period of up to 2 semesters depending on the individual's background.
