Department History

In year 1366, the first step towards creating the field of biomedical engineering in Iran was taken by the hand-cybernetics project and establishing a biomedical engineering laboratory in the faculty of electrical engineering of AUT. This project was supervised by Prof. Hashemi Golpayegani and faculty members from different universities participated in the project by involving their BSc, MSc and PhD students. In 1368, this project won the first Kharazmi prize in Iran. The project continued in the same laboratory in conjunction with some other projects related to artificial neural networks and many students finished their thesis in there. The results were published in many national and international conferences and journals.
  In 1371, the first biomedical engineering faculty in Iran was established in Amirkabir University of Technology. The faculty offered MSc and PhD programs in bioelectric, biomechanics and biomaterials. Bachelor’s programs were established in 1374 for bioelectric and in 1381 for biomechanics and biomaterials. Virtual programs started in 1383 with the master’s program for management of biomedical informatics, in 1386 for biomaterials and in 1387 for sport and tissue engineering.
 Today in total 3304 students have graduated from this faculty and there are 866 active students in the department.
