Biomedical Engineering


The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in 2006 (the first in west Africa) for the purpose of contributing to the Healthcare Technology Management and Maintenance with well-equipped Clinical Engineers to facilitate over the Biomedical Engineering Units in the healthcare services. The Department curriculum of Hands-on-Training always put students on limelight whenever they are on the job market, various hospitals and companies within Ghana and its borders.

MISSION: Our mission is to combine the design and problem-solving skills of Engineering with medical, biological science and technology to improve healthcare diagnosis and treatment.
