WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Biomedical Engineering
The subjects needed to study Biomedical Engineering in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement that is the compulsory WAEC subject combination for Biomedical Engineering must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry
  5. Biology
  6. A trade subject

What is Biomedical engineering all about If you have an interest in technology and invention but also want to pursuit Medicine, then Biomedical Engineering is the right course for you. Degree in Biomedical Engineering equips you with the technical, scientific, and communication skills to understand medical instruments as well to draw on fundamental concepts in Physics and other scientific disciplines to operate, repair, maintain, and interpret the resulting signals and images of complex medical instrumentation. You have got to have a good foundation in chemistry, physic, biology and mathematic..

Biomedical engineering may be defined as the study and application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. It is a combination of technical knowledge in biology and medicine to improve life quality. It is an apt career for those who have a keen interest in medicine and healthcare.

More also, Biomedical engineering is concerned with the development and manufacture of prostheses, medical devices, diagnostic devices, drugs and other therapies. This unique field encompasses bio-instrumentation, bio-materials, bio-mechanics, medical imaging, genetic engineering, orthopedic surgery, cellular and tissue engineering. The combination of Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Sciences with Computers for communication and control, led to the emergence of interdisciplinary courses such as Mechatronics, Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), Geographical Information System (GIS), Bio Technology, Bio Mechanics, Bio Medical Instrumentation and Bio Medical Engineering

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Biomedical Engineering
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree. JAMB UTME subject combination (subject to write in jamb) to study Biomedical Engineering are

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Biology.

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Biomedical Engineering
Two ‘A’ level passes in Chemistry and any one of Physics, Biology/Zoology/ Botany and Maths.

Biomedical Engineering is getting more popular because of the increase in the growing complexity of medical technology around the world. And as a result, there is a huge demand of trained professionals to bridge the gap between clinical medicine and applied medical technology.

These professionals are termed as bio-engineers or biomedical engineers. A Biomedical engineer has to be an expert in engineering sciences, biological sciences and medical sciences. They must be capable of defining a medical problem in engineering terms and find a solution that satisfies both engineering and clinical requirements. They usually design and develop devices and systems ranging from cardiac monitors to clinical computers, artificial hearts to contact lenses, wheel chairs to artificial tendons. They are also integral in the management of technology in hospitals and health care delivery.
