The diploma in Biomedical Engineering at Kyambogo University provides the knowledge and skills in biomedical electronics, instrumentation, mechanics, engineering mathematics, programming, anatomy and physiology required for the service and maintenance of healthcare equipment. It is a two years evening programme.
Programme in brief
Students study all the essential elements of biomedical engineering.
In year one, you will cover essential mathematics, mechanics, electrical engineering for biomedical engineers, biomedical electronics, biofluid mechanics, bioinstrumentation, workshop practice and hospital environment.
In year two you will concentrate on biomedical equipment, biomedical measurement and instrumentation, microprocessor technologies and assistive technologies. In many of the modules, you will have hands on in laboratories and workshops learning through experience. In the final year, you will have an opportunity to participate in a group engineering project.
You will go through hospital training during the recess terms at the end of first and second years.
