King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) has been established since 1960 and is considered one of pioneer science and technology institutions in Thailand. The name of the institute was derived from the name of King Rama IV. The royal grand crown seal has been graciously used as the emblem of the institute. As moved to a new era with 50 years’ experience, KMITL has not only been very successful as an institute specializing in the field of science and technology in Thailand, but also produced a great exceptional number of professional “Practical Engineers” in diversified engineering territories. KMITL is moving forward with the new era with the philosophy “Education and Research in Science and Technology are the Foundation of the Development of the Nation” and KMITL is also ready to glow globally as internationalized activities and supports.
About Biomedical Engineering
The program is classified into 3 main track , Biomedical Instrumentation, Healthcare Information Technology and Medical science track.
Biomedical Instrumentation track, BME-BMI, emphasizes on maintenance and calibration of medical devices, medical device administration and medical device design and development. Students interested in this track can pursue their careers as hospital biomedical engineer, as service engineer, product specialists and sale representatives in medical device private company and as R&D medical device engineer.
Healthcare information technology ,BME-HIT, emphasizes on hospital information technology, networking in hospital, picture archive communication system (PACS), biomedical signal and image processing and physiological modeling. This tracks suits for students who prefer BME-related software rather than hardware and want to pursue career in IT engineering in healthcare industry and/or to pursue their study in graduate studies.
In Medical Science tracks, BME-MS, selected top-class students are qualified to pursue their studies in KMITL medical program. This track will generate the new generation medical doctor who can conduct research in BME engineering. Student can acquire two degree (BME degree and MD degree) in 8-9 years.
Although students are clearly classified into 3 tracks, they still can take their interesting course across their tracks. This is for those who want to be a versatile biomedical engineer.
Degree and Curriculum
B.Eng. (Biomedical Engineering), a fourth-year international program, is suitable for students who are seeking to develop their technical knowledge and the aspects of Biomedical engineering and form a suitable basis for a career focused on engineering solutions to a medical science issues.
