The College of Biomedical Engineering and Instrument Science of Zhejiang University is located at the Yuquan campus of Zhejiang University. The college consists of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Instrument Science and Engineering, with corresponding master's and doctoral degrees and a postdoctoral research station.
Our discipline has a long history. Its predecessor can be traced back to the Department of Scientific Experimental Instruments and Engineering of Zhejiang University established by Mr. Lv Weixue, one of the founders of China's biomedical engineering and instrument science. After several changes, in 1998, the Department of Life Science and Medical Engineering of Zhejiang University and the Department of Clinical Engineering of Zhejiang Medical University established a new Department of Biomedical Engineering, and together with the Department of Instrument Science and Engineering, the College of Life Sciences was established.
Our College adheres to the educational principle of “student-oriented, quality-priority, pursuit of innovative”. We committed to cultivate the students’ innovative ability and self-development quality, and meticulously shapes the cross-combination talented person that can solve the key problems in the field of human health by using natural sciences and modern technologies, and the senior Personnel Who have mastered the basic theory and engineering capabilities of electronic information technology. Our college is the important bases of China for cultivating senior talents in biomedical engineering and instrument science. Our faculty is well-qualified. There are not only well-known and knowledgeable professors, but also a large number of young and middle-aged academic backbones. The college has nearly 100 faculty members now, and has about 500 undergraduate students, about 200 master students, about 180 doctoral students, and about 20 postdoc doctors.
Our college has good conditions for scientific research and education. It has a number of key laboratory, such as “Biomedical Transducer National Special Lab”, “Key Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering, Ministry of Education”, “Zhejiang Provincial Key Laboratory of Cardio-Cerebral Vascular Detection Technology & Medicinal Effectiveness Appraisal”, “Zhejiang Provincial Key Laboratory for Network Multimedia Technology”. It also has a number of cross-research centers, such as " Qiushi Academy for Advanced Studies Zhejiang University", "Zhejiang University Embedded Research Center".
Our institute’s overall scientific research strength is strong. It has successively undertaken a large number of Scientific research projects, such as National Key Basic Research Program (973), National High Technology Research and Development Program (863), National Science & Technology Support Program, National Natural Science Foundation, international cooperation special projects, etc. The total amount of scientific research of our institute has increased year by year, and annual research funding has exceeded 100 million yuan. It has won more than 30 national and provincial-level scientific and technological progress awards, and a number of scientific research achievements have taken the lead in China and advanced international standards.
Our college has established a wide range of research cooperation and exchange mechanisms with internationally renowned universities and scientific research institutions. It has held high quality international academic conferences for many times and has established talents exchange and cooperation training project with well-known universities in United States, Russia, United Kingdom, Japan, Netherlands, Australia, Singapore, etc.
Our college is centered on the overall goal of “two-class” construction of Zhejiang University, forging ahead and working together to establish a world-class and innovative biomedical engineering & instrument science discipline.
