Welcome to the
Biomedical Engineering Society in Vietnam
Biomedical engineering (BME) is an emerging multidisciplinary field that involves the application of state-of-the-art technology to the creation of methodologies and devices for human welfare and for a better understanding of human biological processes. It includes the study of medical instrumentation, bioinformatics, biomechanics, regenerative medicine, and biotechnology, and it requires expertise in applied and basic sciences as well as engineering. Progress in BME has never been more rapid and exciting than it is today.
BME is a new field in Vietnam which is a rapidly developing and socially dynamic country with a great economic potential. Currently, there are a huge number of people in Vietnam who are not able to access to the good healthcare services; and these lead to the poor quality of diagnosis and treatment as well as life quality. Therefore, there are urgent needs and considerably growing interest in the development of medical products in Vietnam. Most importantly, there are many biomedical topics that need to be discovered and investigated. Thus, Vietnam offers an ideal environment to establish a model for development in BME for low and middle income countries, and to attract the collaboration of international scientific community.
The BME Department at International University of Vietnam National Universities in Ho Chi Minh City was established in 2009. It offers the accredited degree of Bachelor of Engineering in BME and the accredited degree of Master of Engineering in BME. Its activities concentrate on the Design and Applications of Medical Devices to satisfy the urgent need of the country. Other activities include Medical Signal and Image Processing, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, and Entrepreneurship in BME. The Department promotes the close relationship between Education, Research and Entrepreneurship. It has more than 300 undergraduate students, 15 graduate students, 9 faculty members and 8 staff. In 2015, ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) assessed our program and ranked ours first in Vietnam and 2nd in ASEAN among all programs including those in science, engineering, business and humanity it has assessed. Recently, other universities have established their own BME programs, and more and more researchers conduct their research in BME field.
For these reasons we established the Biomedical Engineering Society in Vietnam (BMES-VN) for people in Vietnam to have a common professional environment to discuss and exchange professional ideas. In this website you can find the following information:
