Where engineering and medicine meet to make a better world
Biomedical Engineering is the application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to provide for health-related needs. Biomedical Engineering is inherently multidisciplinary (persons from multiple disciplines contribute) and interdisciplinary (expertise from multiple disciplines must be integrated).
There are multiple routes into biomedical engineering at Stellenbosch University. Some of these routes are provided by the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, while the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences also offer routes into biomedical engineering.
