Biomedical Engineering utilises engineering principles and techniques and apply them to medical and science fields.

This is achieved by bringing together the design and problem-solving skills of engineering and mathematical disciplines with medical and biological sciences to further design and develop medical devices and diagnostic tools. The application of these devices and tools in turn also can help develop a better understanding of biological phenomena, processes, diagnosis and treatment. The applications of biomedical engineering have expanded over a wide range such as biocompatible prosthesis, medical and biomedical devices, bioimplants, etc.

As a result, research in these areas is interdisciplinary in nature and can be thought of as an umbrella of knowledge that spans over a number of engineering, health and science fields boundaries.

A wide range of research activities are covered by the centre, a sample of these activities are
