Introduction and Vision

Biomedical Engineering(BME) is a newly established program in the UST. The BME program is a multi-disciplinary program of biology, engineering and medicine, and is designed to tackle various complex problems in biology and medicine using engineering approaches.
As the perspective of BME program in general is very broad and difficult to focus the program into one, we have divided the UST-BME program into three tracks; Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Biomedical Imaging and Medical Systems, and Biomedical Microsystems. This three track-system is designed to provide students only with a guideline to the focus area of their interests, and students are not necessarily limited to only one track, but rather allowed to choose any inter-track combination.
