UNIST BME Undergraduate Program
UNIST students should choose a school and major in their first year. All students who select BME department will take biomedical engineering fundamentals courses in areas such as engineering mathematics, bioinformatics, biomedical instrumentation, and tissue bioengineering and will choose from six BME topics for specialized advanced coursework. In addition, students will take laboratory courses and complete a Capstone project under faculty supervision.
Six Concentrations in BME
Do you want to light up the world? Study imaging technology and cutting-edge microscopy. You can be part of the development and delivery of novel methodologies enabling state-of-the-art biological systems studies and translational research.
BRAIN & COGNITIVE ENGINEERING
Do you want to understand how human brain works? Do you dream of building an artificial intelligence system that works like humans? You can get a chance to learn human information processing and apply the knowledge to solve engineering problems.
GENOMICS & BIOINFORMATICS
Learn about the genome, a life’s blueprint, and the way how to decode the secret messages in it, in many cases related to human diseases like cancer. One further step, learn how to engineer the genome, which can correct the disease-related errors for a cure.
REHABILITATION & REGENERATIVE ENGINEERING
Are you interested in medical technologies to restore and improve health? Lean how engineering tools can assist people with mobility, generate implantable tissue, and enhance the organ function.
Precision Nanomedicine allows us to detect and treat various diseases more effectively. Learn how to develop and deliver nanotherapeutic drugs. Acquire knowledge in most updated microfluidics techniques that permit unparalleled levels of the sensitivity for the diagnosis of various diseases.
Join the digital healthcare revolution! Digitization in healthcare is revolutionizing the way we prevent, treat and manage health conditions. Digital healthcare addresses critical issues for the remote delivery of medical care (hospital at home) and enables digital therapeutic driven by high quality software programs.
