Overview of Biomedical Engineering Research Group

A more basic understanding of the physiology of the human body down to the molecular and cellular level has expanded the scope of the field that was originally known as Medical Electronics to become a field of expertise in Biomedical Engineering, which is widely supported by various expertise in engineering, medicine and biology.

Biomedical Engineering can be defined as a multidisciplinary field as a synergy of various basic engineering concepts in the world of medicine & biology for the improvement of human health. This synergy has resulted in various types of new devices which are currently widely used in improving the quality and handling of health (health-care). Advances in biology have contributed a lot to this field, resulting in the emergence of various new devices (medical instruments) capable of displaying various parameters of the human body down to the cellular and molecular level of the nano order. This progress triggers the need for human resources who have a strong foundation, both in terms of biology and medical science as well as an engineering basis for their application at the device level.

At ITB, research in the field of medical electronics has been initiated in the Department of Electrical Engineering since the early 1970s. This activity then continued as a Microelectronics Industrial Engineering Center research program where research was directed at two application fields, namely industrial electronics and medical electronics. At the end of the 1990s, the Master of Biomedical Engineering program was introduced as part of the electronics pathway. This program (option) then continued with various shifts following the rules and curriculum structure at ITB to its current form, where the handling was managed by the biomedical engineering research group as part of STEI-ITB. The growing need for various new devices in the field of health services is expected to be a good momentum to advance this field and strengthen the synergy of various related disciplines

In the Proceedings of the IEEE Celebrates a Century: Special editorial features and centennial events are under way, one of the areas that will develop in the future is the integration and synergy of nano-bio-info-cogno (NBIC) technologies. The four fields (nano-bio-info-cogno), have been partially worked on in several Research Group within STEI.
