Department of Biomedical Engineering, Shantou University 


Unique Capability 

Biomedical engineering combines the theories and application of engineering in biology and medicine to study the state and changes of the human body at different levels and uses engineering techniques to regulate such changes. By providing solutions to medical problems and treatment of diseases through prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, human health can be guarded. 

With the support of the Li Ka-shing foundation and partnering with the University of Michigan, Shantou University has formally established the Department of Biomedical Engineering. In developing the curriculum, we adhere to the system of "solid foundation, professionalism, flexibility, distinction, reinforcement training, and improving comprehensive quality and competency". The curriculum includes five major modules, namely; natural sciences and mathematics foundationengineering fundamentalsbiomedical foundations, biomedical engineering fundamentals, and design sequence courses. 


International Curriculum and Teaching Staff 

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Shantou University delivers advanced lessons in English based on international curriculum from the University of MichiganThe curriculum covers medical instrumentation, medical signal processing, imaging technology, data analysis, biomechanics and biomedical engineering design. The teaching staff consists of local teachers with overseas experience, full time lecturers from University of Michigan and a team of outstanding overseas talent. The team has a good understanding of both the domestic education system with international exposure and advanced scientific research experience. A major research focus for the team is on the application of advanced technologies such as medical chips, large medical data set and brain machine interfaces in medical and health sciences 


International Training 

This course aims to cultivate promising talents by combining knowledge and methods of engineering with life science; training students to master the field of biomedical engineering with the ability for innovation, independent learning and global view. We hope that this will lead to the development of cutting-edge medical equipment and lay a solid foundation for a progressive life science industry in the future. 


Unique Learning Experience 

Students take center stage in an open classroom atmosphere here at the Department. This transforms students from passive recipients to masters of learning. Largely through problem-based learningstudents gather relevant knowledge through self-study, discussion, practice, hypothesis testingand self-reflectionOur aim is to shape students' independence, develop their ability to innovate and acquire new knowledge, and use their new found knowledge to tackle hard problems. 


Broad Prospects after Graduation
