Salient Features of Department of Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is for those who love to learn about the systems of the human body with an engineering approach and want to serve humanity with technology. Biomedical engineering was started in 2019 after getting the approval from Pakistan engineering council. The Biomedical Engineering department is being established with faculty and staff having professional degrees of Ph.D, Masters, and Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering. We have five state of the art dedicated biomedical engineering Laboratories named biomedical instrumentation, Biomedical signal processing, basic and biomedical electronics, Biomaterial, and biomechanics. Along with the core biomedical labs we also share the state of the art labs with mechatronic engineering, Electrical engineering, and physics departments. Our students also use the lab infrastructure and clinical setup of Fazaia Medical College (FMC) and the recently established modern PAF Hospital.

Along with the traditional engineering knowledge of equipment (e.g ECG, EMG, EEG, spectrophotometer, hematology, and chemistry analyzer) to teach our students modern skills of teaching modern skills to our students. The Biomedical Engineering department is the only department in Pakistan using oculus for education. We have the latest 3D printers for biocompatible material printing, and electrode pattern designing. The students use high-quality data acquisition cards to acquire the physiological signal from the human body and apply the modern signal processing and machine learning techniques at the biomedical signal processing lab.

We recently got two research funding, one from the National Center of Artificial Intelligence (NCAI) and the other from the National Center of Robotics and Automation. We have two research groups in the biomedical engineering department. The biomedical instrumentation research group is working on designing and developing diagnostic/therapeutic devices and physiological measurements. The Biomaterial research group focused on smart materials, hydrogels, and soft robotics.
