Welcome to Faculty of  Biosciences and Medical Engineering (FBME), a newly established faculty in UTM to champion teachings and research in Biosciences & Medical Engineering. The faculty offers innovative  programs for both undergraduates and post-graduates with a balance course in Biosciences and Medical Engineering, and a special emphasis on clinical and industrial applications.

We believe strongly in the value of interdisciplinary pursuits in this emerging field where engineering techniques and technologies from various disciplines are used to address needs within the medical and healthcare industries. Our vision is to ensure that UTM and the country as a whole would be fully equipped with the manpower and technologies in this emerging and demanding field of engineering.

FBME is committed to excellence in both undergraduate and graduate education. Opportunities for education and research exist in areas of biomechanics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, medical devices, bio-signal processing, MEM implantable systems, physiological modeling and simulation, monitoring and control, as well as medical robotics.

FBME offers students unparalleled access to engineering experts in the fields of mechanical, electrical & electronics, biological, and computer science. The demands for Biosciences and Biomedical Engineers are increasing every year in tandem with the increasing demand for healthcare services, and the faculty is committed to produce engineering graduates with industrial leadership capability especially in the medical device industry.
