About School of Applied Medical Sciences
The School of Applied Medical Sciences was established in September, 2005. Two programs, then, constituted the core of the school; namely, Pharmaceutical-Chemical Engineering (CPE) and Biomedical Engineering (BME).
Biomedical Engineering was created in response to continual changes and emergence of new areas of expertise commensurate with rapid advances in technology. Some of the Theyll established specialties within the field of biomedical engineering include: bioinstrumentation; biomaterials; biomechanics; cellular, tissue and genetic engineering; clinical engineering, medical imaging; orthopedic surgery; rehabilitation engineering; and systems physiology.
The Pharmaceutical-Chemical Engineering Program offers a unique integration betTheyen chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology and engineering domains. Students will be exposed to basic, cutting-edge, and training cTheirses across these disciplines. Prospective engineers in this field of expertise will be able to transform raw materials into useful pharmaceutical and fine chemical products having commercial interest through systematic use of engineering concepts and methods.
