Biomedical Engineering (BME) encompasses a wide spectrum of activities where knowledge and
tools used in traditional engineering disciplines are applied to the development of devices and systems for clinical diagnosis and therapy and to the investigation of the physiological and biological basis of human diseases. With the rise in life expectancy and the importance of the quality of life in the developed countries, there is an increasing demand for high-level health-related products and services. To meet these needs, the biomedical industry has been developing at an accelerated pace and is currently one of the leading sectors of the high-tech industries.
Biomedical industry in Israel is involved in areas such as artificial organs, implanted devices, diagnosis and therapy, equipment for catheterization and imaging, rehabilitation engineering, aids for the feeble and disabled, biomaterials, and tissue engineering. It is in the forefront of developing technologies for minimally and non-invasive surgery and monitoring systems for such surgeries. The biomedical industry is characterized by innovation, sophistication and by interdisciplinary R&D.
Past experience shows that our graduates, from the relatively new BSc program, as well as the well-established MSc and PhD programs, have been very successful in finding employment in the Israeli biomedical industry. Their ability to integrate knowledge from several fields has been found appealing by many businesses and employers. They can be found in key positions in leading companies. The unique combination of engineering with a solid background in the medical sciences is very attractive to many companies, particularly start-ups, research institutions, health organizations and hospitals.
Graduate studies in the Faculty are intended to deepen and widen students’ basic knowledge in Biomedical Engineering as well as develop strong problem-solving abilities in the range of complex engineering activities. Graduate and doctoral Biomedical Engineering students in the research tracks (MSc and PhD) combine advanced engineering studies with innovative research carried out in the framework of one of the Faculty’s research groups. The research topics aim to respond to the needs of the Biomedical industry worldwide.
