The program is a four-year BS program in collaboration between Alfaisal University and King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre (KFSHRC). Admission to the program starts in Fall 2024.

Program Overview

The goal of the Biomedical Engineering program is to integrate academia, clinical medicine, and the biomedical industry into the biomedical engineering education and research program. This provides structural support to the clinical rotations and senior design projects for the bachelor's program.

The new four-year Biomedical Engineering program at Alfaisal University offers students a comprehensive and cutting-edge curriculum that combines principles of engineering, biology, and medicine. This program is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute to the advancement of healthcare technology and improve patient care outcomes.

Throughout the program, students will delve into a wide range of subjects, including biomedical instrumentation, medical imaging, biomaterials, biomechanics, and biomedical signal processing. They will also gain a deep understanding of anatomy, physiology, and biomedical ethics, enabling them to approach their work with a holistic perspective.

Hands-on experience is a crucial component of the program, and students will have numerous opportunities to engage in laboratory experiments, design projects, and clinical internships. These practical experiences will enhance their problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and teamwork capabilities.

Upon completing the program, graduates will be well-prepared to pursue careers in various sectors, including medical device manufacturing, healthcare systems, research and development, and biomedical consulting. They will also have a strong foundation for advanced studies in biomedical engineering or related disciplines.
