    Courses

    Graduation Credit Requirements (list of courses)At least 130 credits should be completed. This should include 70 required credits (including basic required courses and required professional courses), 32 credits for elective professional courses, and at least complete 28 credits of general education courses. The curriculums are classified into two tracks, including (A) Medical Mechanics & Materials, and (B) Bio-photomechatronics & Medical Devices. Students have to choose one of two tracks to major before the final exam of first semester of sophomore year. Each major track has the limitation for 22 students maximally. Students must take at least 6 selective courses of each track to complete the track major.

    Co-curricular Activities with Universities of “Taipei University League”
     

    To integrate the knowledge of engineering disciplines and modern biology to solve the problem encountered in medical and living systems. We need support to provide courses related to advance engineering, law, business, marine biology and environmental science. The Taipei University League is composed of 4 universities, including Taipei Medical University, National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT), National Taipei University (NTPU), National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU). We are arranging advanced courses supported by our partner university for our students. Numerous related fundamental courses of the League and of SBME and correspondent courses are offered in the Taipei University League. In upcoming years, six co-curriculums are scheduled, including Design and Development of Medical Devices, Regulation and Management of Medical Devices, Research and Development of Assistive Devices, Biomedical Signals and Systems, Research Projects of Biomedical Engineering, Numerical Simulation and Analysis.

     
    Accelerated (4+1) Bachelor's/Master's Degree Programs
    We have started to design the Bachelor's/Master's Degree Programs with graduate schools in our college and foreign universities. Universities we are collaborating are: Temple University in Philadelphia, USA; Tokyo University of Science in Tokyo, Japan.
     
    Summer International Programs
    Objectives: This program offers undergraduate students of SBME with the opportunity to work closely with foreign mentors as well as experiencing different culture in the world. The programs are designed for students who wish to study in the graduate school abroad in the future. One institute of our sister universities will be chosen to host the summer program.
    Program description: The program will be separated to two parts, lecture and research lab experience. Students will be pre-selected by the PI of each research lab before attending the school. Each student participant will be working with a faculty mentor with special expertise and interests matched, as closely as possible, to the student’s research interests and career goals. Students will either assist the faculty member in an ongoing research project or work collaboratively with the mentor in designing a new project of mutual interest. The lectures will be provided by the visiting institute, which will find the appropriate mentor(s) to design the courses, including lab safety training, biohazard training and appropriate lectures. In weekday, two hour lectures and six hours research lab will be regularly scheduled and city tour or daily trip will be arranged in weekend. A workshop will be hosted in the last week of the program to share results and experiences, and the adviser will be invited to attend.
     
    Capstone Research Project
    The course of Capstone Research Project starts from the fall semester of sophomore to the spring semester of senior, 6 courses overall. Although these courses are elective, they will help students to understand the application and methodology of biomedical engineering. Not only it could let students know how the theory becomes reality, but evoke their interest in researches of biomedical engineering. We will also encourage students to apply the College Student Research Scholarship of MOST project or participating laboratory’s research projects.
    The following topics can be included.
    1. 1.Targeted Drug Delivery
    2. 2.Nanotechnology
    3. 3.Orthopedic Implants & Devices
    4. 4.Diagnostic Biochips
    5. Biomedical 3D Printing
    6. Dental Implants
    7. Nanoscale Biomaterials
    8. Translational Blood Therapy Research
    9. Rehabilitation Engineering & Assistive Devices
