The Institute of Biomedical Engineering is unique in Turkey and offers interdisciplinary instructional programs and research, leading to MS and Ph.D. degrees in three major areas, namely in Bioelectronics, in Biocybernetics and Biomechanics, and in Prosthetics and Artificial Organs.
The field of Biomedical Engineering has emerged as an important profession in developed as well as developing countries and is concerned with the application of engineering technology and science methodology to the analysis of biological, physiological and health care problems.
The objectives of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering are as follows:
1- To provide formal education, training, and research experience in Biomedical Engineering to graduate students of either engineering or physical science background, and also to graduate students with background in life sciences.
2-To conduct research jointly with physicians and scientists in order to develop new health care practices and instrumentation.
