Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering study program is one of the new study programs within the School of Electrical and Informatics Engineering, ITB. The Biomedical Engineering study program was developed in anticipation of the development of medical electronic systems and health technology.

At this time, the maintenance, measurement, and calibration of medical equipment in hospitals is carried out by the electromedical technician unit, under the coordination of the Head of the Hospital Facility Maintenance Installation. Ideally, the person in charge of these activities is someone with a profession as a clinical engineer, not a medical professional. With this condition, Indonesia will still need a large number of clinical engineers, who will serve the community in around 2300 hospitals and clinics throughout Indonesia.

Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary field as a synergy between the fields of biology and medicine with various basic sciences and engineering. Biomedical Engineering expertise is generally related to problem solving skills and finding the right solution. In health service activities, Biomedical Engineering expertise is often needed to assist in selecting, performing performance tests, and compiling maintenance procedures for various medical equipment. This expertise is also related to innovation and development of devices in industry and research and exploration of various concepts that can be utilized in the biomedical field.

Thus, it is hoped that these competencies will be formed into skills in addition to developing Biomedical Engineering applications, as well as building thinking and innovation capabilities to generate new opportunities in the development and utilization of Biomedical Engineering.

Registration & Graduation Data

Biomedical Engineering is a multi/trans-disciplinary engineering engineering approach that aims to bridge the traditional disciplines of engineering, biology, and medicine.

Engineering engineering approaches have played an increasing role in the advancement of life sciences and healthcare. Future breakthroughs in this area are expected to be increasingly driven by technology.

Biomedical engineering expertise is undoubtedly an important component of these advances, as the practice demands a comprehensive understanding of both biological and medical aspects. It basically applies well-known principles in engineering and physical sciences to study and solve problems in biology and medicine. STEI ITB predicts the increasing relevance of educating future engineers with a strong affinity for biology and medicine; then a special program was established in the field of Biomedical Engineering.

The Biomedical Engineering Program at STEI ITB is made up of faculty members who are respected in their research and education fields. They are involved in research activities spanning various fields such as electronics and instrumentation, signal processing, computer networks, intelligent systems and robotics, machine vision, and biomedical systems modeling. The multi/trans-disciplinary nature of the program is demonstrated through the active participation of various faculties and schools at ITB; including the School of Life Sciences and Technology, the School of Pharmacy, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and the Faculty of Industrial Technology.

  5. Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
  7. Ability to communicate effectively.
  8. Broad education is required to understand the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and social contexts.
  9. Recognition of the need for, and ability to engage in lifelong learning.
  10. Knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. Ability to use modern engineering techniques, skills and tools required for engineering practice.

As advances in biology and medicine advance, the demand for biomedical engineering expertise will become more and more popular in the future. The following job titles represent just a few of the options available:

  1. Research engineers working in the lab, testing and creating. This work requires a high degree of creativity on the part of the engineer, as well as a great deal of patience in dealing with the complex characteristics of biological and medical systems. Attention to detail is essential for graduates entering this profession. Research engineers are responsible for the discovery stage behind new biomedical technologies.
  2. Clinical engineers apply the skills of a systems engineer for proper installation and maintenance of healthcare instruments in pre-clinical and clinical settings. Experienced clinical engineers rely on their ability to think holistically about the technical aspects of the system as well as the predictable biomedical and biohazard consequences. Clinical engineers are responsible for routine inspection and troubleshooting of medical instruments involved in healthcare facilities.
  3. Biomedical technology analysts work at medical technology certification bodies to assess whether certain technological advances are beneficial for adoption in clinical practice. Biomedical innovations should only be allowed to become part of the clinical routine when a thorough assessment has established significant benefits over the associated costs and medical risks. In this way, the unnecessary burden and harm to the patient can be reduced.
