Biomedical Engineering

ABOUT THE

Program

Biomedical Engineering is the discipline that integrates knowledge from mathematics, sciences, and engineering to plan, design, develop, implement, and operate solutions focused on human health and healthcare systems. The subject of knowledge of Biomedical Engineering is the human being, their physiological, anatomical, and biochemical behavior, to address any abnormalities. Based on this study, the biomedical engineer proposes a technological solution, whether it be computer-based, mechanical, or electronic, that can contribute to solving the problem or, at the very least, improving the quality of life of those affected, within the framework of national regulations and international agreements signed by the Colombian State related to health.

APPLICANT

Profile

.

The Biomedical Engineering program is open to all high school graduates in Colombia or their equivalent abroad, without requiring additional skills, abilities, or aptitudes. It is aimed at individuals with creative sensitivity and social commitment, with an interest and motivation to improve the quality of life of vulnerable populations, especially those with disabilities, and to implement solutions to human health problems through the use of technology, engineering, and mathematics in their role as engineers serving the healthcare sector.

GRADUATE

Profile

.

The Biomedical Engineer graduated from the Universidad Industrial de Santander is a comprehensive professional capable of creating and improving technological systems, processes, techniques, methods, and devices that solve, with a sustainable approach, problems in the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases in humans. They are distinguished by their ability to apply fundamental knowledge of engineering, basic sciences, and medicine. They are competent to formulate projects and implement effective and innovative solutions in one of the program's emphasis areas.

CONTINUOUS

Improvement

.

The Biomedical Engineering program has implemented a process of continuous improvement that will enable future professionals have a solid educational foundation with the capacity to lead innovation processes, emerging technologies, and anticipate the well-being and safety needs of the community. This aims to ensure that students, employers, and society at large have confidence that the program meets quality standards and offers graduates prepared to enter a global workforce.

Student Outcomes

The training of the Biomedical Engineer has been based on the mission, principles, and values of the institutional project of UIS, with a competency-based and student-centered approach. The learning outcomes of the Biomedical Engineer at UIS will allow them to demonstrate that they are able to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex problems in Biomedical Engineering, applying principles of engineering, basic sciences, and medicine to improve health and quality of life for people.

  2. Apply engineering design considering public health, safety, and well-being, as well as legal, regulatory, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors in national and international contexts to create reliable solutions that meet specific health needs of human beings.

  3. Communicate effectively with a variety of audiences, both technical and non-technical, to receive and deliver information.

  4. Recognize their ethical and professional responsibility and make informed judgments, considering their impact in global, economic, environmental, and social contexts when formulating biomedical solutions in engineering situations, especially those affecting public safety, health, and well-being.

  5. Perform effectively as a member or leader in an interdisciplinary team whose participants create a collaborative and inclusive environment to set goals, plan tasks, and achieve objectives.

  6. Analyze and interpret data using established methodologies for experimentation, and evaluate them through engineering judgments to draw conclusions about a health problem.

  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies to stay updated on changes and developments in knowledge, technology, and tools contributing to the development of the biomedical discipline.

  8. Analyze, model, design, implement, and evaluate devices, systems, components, or processes of biomedical engineering to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases.

  9. Conduct measurements and interpret data from living systems for the understanding, definition, and resolution of biological and medical problems.
