Department of Biomedical Engineering

The Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) degree in Biomedical Engineering started in 1995 under the College of Engineering at Ajman University. The program was accredited with “accreditation eligible” status in the academic year 2000-01 by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, UAE. The program was approved by the CAA with the status “full accreditation” from the academic year 2006-07. The last re-accreditation of the program was in 2011.

The current biomedical engineering program is comprised of 141 credit hours.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the BME program requires a UAE Secondary School Certificate (science major) or its equivalent with a minimum of 70% and a minimum TOEFL score of 500 or its equivalent in other standardized English language tests. 

The currents requirements are considered sufficient. Students are able to successfully complete the program and graduate in the recommended time-frame.

Students with a TOEFL score of less than 500 or equivalent are admitted conditionally and enrolled in an Intensive English language Program (IEP) in order to achieve the score. Such students are not allowed to register for their specialization courses until they achieve the required TOEFL score (or equivalent). 

Other details and related regulations for admission and registration of students are published in the University Catalog.
