Course of Study

The study program comprises mandatory courses, a wide array of elective courses in our specializations and general elective courses. The mandatory courses are in the fundamental sciences (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Computer Sciences), the life sciences (Anatomy, Biochemistry, Cellular Biology and Physiology), the various fields of Engineering, which provide a wide Engineering foundation in Mechanics, Electronics and Control, Materials Engineering and Transport Phenomena, and in faculty subjects in the field of Biomedical Engineering (Bioelectrical Phenomena, Physiological Control, Cell and Tissue Mechanics etc.), which provide students with practical and laboratory experience and encourage creativity (including 4 Biomedical laboratory courses and 2 project courses in which students implement the Engineering knowledge they acquired designing Biomedical implements and systems). In addition, there is a Clinical-Engineering project course in the clinical departments of hospitals, which exposes the student to the clinical work environment and gives rise to Engineering needs requiring solutions.

The elective courses allow students to specialize in specific fields. Each student must specialize in at least 2 fields. The fields are:

  • Medical Imaging and medical signal processing
  • Biomechanics and Fluid Flow
  • Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering
  • In addition, the fields in the combined programs are:
  • Paramedical – for students in the joint Medical and Biomedical Engineering program
  • Nano-Biophysics – for students in the combined Physics and Biomedical Engineering program

The list of electives includes a variety of courses, such as: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Instruments, Non-invasive Techniques, Imaging Techniques, Processing of Signals and Images in Medicine, Physiological Control, Uses of Optics and Ultrasound in Imaging and Treatment, Skeletal, Muscles and Joints Systems, Orthopedic and Rehabilitative Biomechanics, Artificial Organs and Aids, Biological Fluid Flow Systems, Respiratory Systems, Bio-sensor Systems, Biochemical Engineering, Molecular Engineering, Tissue Engineering, Artificial Metabolic Organs, Controlled Drug Delivery.
