The SKVC conclusion states that the Biomedical Engineering program at KTU is very good and excellent – this program has a focus on biomedical signal processing and perfectly meets the needs of employers. Students are involved in both research and clinical activities in many aspects of the course, from visiting clinics to collaborative projects. This results in a well-balanced and well-rounded learning experience for students that prepares them very well for their future careers. This was confirmed by former and current students as well as representatives of employers.
The program is linked with several thriving research institutes within KTU. The research at these institutes is at an international level as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications and collaborations. These links afford the students an excellent exposure to modern research techniques and facilities. It also integrates current research into the curriculum which ensures its relevance to employers. Good links with clinical partners provide the students with insight into how medical devices are used and how to meet clinical needs when developing such devices.
