Program Description

The healthcare in Malawi, just like in other sub-Saharan countries, is facing a lot of challenges as evidenced by poor quantitative and qualitative health output and outcome due to, inter alia, lack of or inadequate skilled biomedical engineers and technicians who can be used in the designing, manufacturing, adapting and maintenance of medical equipment. The health delivery system in Malawi requires well educated, well trained and skilled biomedical engineers who can assist in solving healthcare technological problems with the aim of raising the standards of healthcare delivery in Malawi and beyond. Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. It combines the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to help improve patient health care and the quality of life of individuals. Graduates can work across industries but mostly in the health sector, engineering, manufacturing, and consultancies. First year taught modules will include Medical Sciences, Engineering Science, Bio-Ethics and Professional Studies, Regenerative Medicine, Biomedical Signal Processing, Principles of Biomedical Engineering, Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine, Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Engineering, Human-Machine Interface, Advanced Biocomputing and Bioinformatics, Advanced Biomaterials and Biomedical Research Methods and Seminar. Second year is dedicated to dissertation writing.
