Brief History

The Department of Biomedical Engineering, a national leader in one of the most rewarding disciplines of engineering, was established in 2003 and admitted its first batch of 8 undergraduate students in the 2004/2005 academic year.  The academic programme was instituted with a mission to engage the challenges of healthcare in Ghana and beyond, and was structured around four major focus areas namely, Biological Systems Engineering; Computational Biology; Sensors, Microsystems and Instrumentation; and Biomaterials and Cell/ Tissue Engineering.

In the first semester of the 2014/2015 academic year the department initiated a graduate programme, and admitted its first batch of PhD students.  The department has faculty with diverse academic backgrounds and is committed to providing opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students to succeed in their careers.
