About CUHK BME
BME is an interdisciplinary study in which biomedical and engineering sciences are applied innovatively to solve human health problems.
Biomedical engineers design innovative medical instruments & sensors, build new imaging and information systems for precision medicine, create biomaterials for regenerative medicine, and develop novel technologies in nanomedicine.
BME is a growing industry with a strong career outlook, even at times of global economic recession. The demand for skilled BM engineers, working alongside with physicians and therapists, is projected to rise as the healthcare field continues its rapid growth and the roles of technology in diagnostic, therapeutic and research activities continue to expand.
