University rank #173 (QS) ,
The International Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Engineering is provided by the College of Nuclear Science at National Tsing Hua University. Biomedical Engineering is one of the most multidisciplinary scientific fields in relation to human life, and has been highlighted by national developments, social needs and international trends.


  • With a strong base on atomic, molecular, and nano-technology, the main theme of the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering is to develop clinical techniques and applications based on fundamental sciences such as physics, chemistry and biology; and to utilize knowledge from chemical engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering. Furthermore, the research fields are extended from traditional tissue and organ levels to modern cellular and molecular scales by combining interdisciplinary research fields to study various critical issues, e.g., developments of polymers and nanoparticles for both ultrasonic and macrophages-mediated cancer therapy. 
  •     The goal of Biomedical Engineering is to advance fundamental understanding of biological system functions and responses in terms of physical/chemical mechanisms, and to develop effective technologies and applications to address social needs by designing  novel medical materials, devices, and imaging techniques for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases.
