The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) is established in 1972 and is the first BME Program in Taiwan. Currently, BME/CYCU offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. program. Biomedical engineering combines engineering expertise with medical needs for the enhancement of health care. It is a branch of engineering in which knowledge and skills are developed and applied to define and solve problems in Biology and medicine. Biomedical engineers may be called upon to design instruments and devices, to bring together knowledge from multidiscipline to develop new procedures, or to carry out research to acquire knowledge needed to solve new problems. Currently, BME/CYCU offers BS, MS, and P.D. programs. Areas of graduate study and research include medical instrumentation, Biomaterials, Biomechanics, Bio-signal and medical image processing, Biophotonics, cellular and tissue engineering.
The first Department of Biomedical Engineering is founded at Chung Yuan in 1972.
The Graduate Program of Master is established in 1983
The PhD degree of Biomedical Engineering program was first offered at Institute of Applied Physics in 1992.
The doctoral program of Biomedical Engineering is formally established in 1997.
The first ABET accredited engineering department in 2004.
