MS BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

1. Curriculum of MS Biomedical Engineering

There are three MS tracks offering in the field of Biomedical Engineering at ZUFEST. These specialized streams/tracks and scheme of study are as follows:

  1. Bio Informatics
  2. Clinical Instrumentation
  3. Rehabilitation Engineering

Each MS student has to select four courses as offered by the University from the list of core courses and four or six elective courses from the specialization stream. A student can opt six credit hours research work/thesis instead of two courses from the specialization steam.
