July 20, 2014
Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (KUET) has decided to open Bio Medical Engineering (BME) at undergraduate level from 2014-15 academic year. University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh approved it on July 17, 2014 following the decision of university academic council meeting on September 12, 2013 and hence approved by the syndicate. The Bio Medical Engineering Department is already in KUET since 2007 at post-graduate level. In the meantime, many students successfully completed their M.Sc. Engineering Degree in Bio Medical Engineering. A total of 30 students will get the opportunity for admission at this department in the first year B.Sc. Engineering course from the current academic session. Prof. Dr. Muhammed Alamgir, the Vice-Chancellor of KUET said that the start of Biomedical Engineering in the undergraduate level is the first time in the country, and it will definitely play a vital role to meet the current demand in this sector, in which Bangladeh is lagging behind.
