Department of Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering uses engineering principles in physical sciences, biological and medical sciences to improve diagnoses, and treatment in healthcare delivery. It combines the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to improve healthcare diagnosis and treatment. The Department of Biomedical Engineering was established in 2006 (the first in West Africa) for the purpose of contributing to the growing healthcare needs of Ghana in the area of hospital equipment and technical expertise. About 490 students are in the Biomedical Engineering Department. Our teaching and research focus to equip students with the knowledge required to effectively contribute to national development in the areas of design of medical instruments, devices and software, and to conduct research to solve clinical problems has given our graduates a competitive edge in the industry.

The Department has the following well-equipped laboratories:

  • Bio-transducers and Electrodes Laboratory
  • Biomedical Instrumentation
  • Bio-signal and Bio-data Acquisition
  • Bio-sensors and Simulation Laboratory
  • ECG, EMG, and EEG Systems Laboratory

Objectives:

The central drive of the Department is to impart a passion for learning, scientific discovery, innovation, and social impact in an extraordinary group of graduates who, because of their experiences in our programme, will:

  • Continue to utilize and enhance their engineering and biological training to solve problems related to health and healthcare that are globally relevant and based on ethically sound principles.
  • Demonstrate leadership in their respective careers in biomedical engineering or interrelated areas of industry, government, academia, and clinical practice, and
  • Engage in life-long learning by continuing their education in graduate or professional school or through opportunities for advanced career or professional training.

Why earn your Biomedical Engineering Degree at All Nations University?

  • Small class sizes foster close and healthy student-professor relationships.
  • Faculty typically have doctorates or significant industrial experience. Lectures and labs are taught by professors and assisted by graduate students.
  • The diverse and broad-based engineering education includes a strong design emphasis and practical laboratory experience.
  • Every student works on a team to complete a two-semester capstone design project.
  • Students have the opportunity to work with faculty on undergraduate research projects.
  • Student chapters of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) allow students to develop academically and professionally by attending seminars and visiting technical sites.
