Biomedical Engineering is an engineering branch that aims to develop diagnostic and therapeutic methods for the health sector and to reach a solution by applying the engineering approach to the fields of medicine and biology. It is an interdisciplinary department offering courses in many scientific fields such as medicine, computer engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, biology, molecular biology, chemistry and biochemistry.
Becoming one of the best biomedical engineering departments in the nationally accredited, internationally accredited, internationally recognized area of education and to be a well-respected and recognized department with a strong corporate culture and identity, developed in the world of science and technology, and with other universities and industries.
Providing a universal knowledge and technology to the researcher, to adopt contemporary and ethical values, to believe in the rule of law, as well as theoretical knowledge in a universal scale, with application skills, industry, and research institutions, design, production, implementation and R & D studies will be able to work with success. Besides, the aim of the program is to educate engineers who are conscious of their environment, social, economic and professional ethics, have responsibility and leader acteristics.
The aim of the program is to train Biomedical Engineers who can follow the scientific developments in biomedical, electrical-electronic and automation technologies, have competent, creative, scientific production power, can accept science and experiment as a basis, have participatory, numerical and academic thinking. Besides, to train engineers who can take responsibility, produce science and can apply the knowledge produced in the international field to social and industrial benefit are in the goals of Biomedical Engineering program.
Language of education is Turkish.
Biomedical Engineering is a new field that applies the principles and methods of basic science such as engineering and physics and mathematics to solve problems in biology and medicine. Biomedical Engineering, which provides a bridge between engineering sciences and life, includes interdisciplinary studies.
Biomedical engineers use their own interdisciplinary knowledge to design new medical devices and instruments, apply the principles of engineering in understanding and repair the human body, decide, and decrease the cost of using engineering tools.
Biomedical Engineering Program serves in the Faculty of Technology. The program is mainly concerned with engineering principles applied to the solution of problems in biology and medicine. Biomedical Engineering program consists of Basic Sciences, Engineering Sciences, Biology, Physiology, Engineering Design, Social, Economics and Management Sciences and Turkish Language and History courses. Selcuk University Faculty of Technology Biomedical Engineering graduates can work in the Biomedical Industry, medical research laboratories, and hospitals.
Students can apply for registration in our department by completing the processes determined by YÖK within the framework of academic and legal regulations of the University.
Those who fulfil the conditions can transfer to our department from bachelors or associate programs according to adaptation rules.
The conditions required for graduation from the Biomedical Engineering Program with a Bachelor's degree are stated in the UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION AND EXAMINATION REGULATIONS submitted by the Faculty of Technology.
The Principles of Measurement and Evaluation are specified in the UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION AND EXAMINATION REGULATIONS submitted by the Faculty of Technology.
Biomedical engineers are responsible for the technical operation and maintenance-repair of mechanical, electronic devices and systems used in diagnosis and treatment of hospitals. In addition, biomedical engineers can work in the field of equipment ion, performance control and calibration of devices in transferring the developing technology to the hospital environment. In addition, biomedical engineers will be able to employed to design new biomaterials to be used in various treatments.
The need for qualified biomedical engineers specialized in the health sector, which is one of the two most important technological developments in the world, is increasing considerably. In our country, at least 1 Biomedical Engineer must be employed in the hospitals affiliated to the Ministry of Health with a capacity of 200 beds and private hospitals with a capacity of 100 beds and above (in the Official Gazette dated 27.07.2011 and numbered 24472, Official Gazette dated 22.03.2002 and numbered 24708).
Our graduates can continue their education with masters then doctorate degrees as long as they fulfil their personal application requirements.
