The specialization of biomedical engineering in Turkey has witnessed a great acceleration in parallel with the development achieved in the world, in the field of research and development, in addition to the field of education, and the development achieved by Turkey in the health field has reached an icon with Its modern infrastructure and advanced hospitals.

Distinguishing the health sector in Turkey

Turkish hospitals have received international recognition for their advanced infrastructure, winning the highest percentage of the Joint Commission International’s recognition, attracting foreigners who carry out medical tourism in search of treatment, and winning the praise of the Regional Director of the World Health Organization, who said regarding its management of the Corona crisis: Turkey has succeeded in protecting the elderly thanks to its measures.

Turkey has many health organizations and hospitals, which operate under an infrastructure with advanced technology, especially private hospitals in Turkey equipped with the most advanced technological equipment.

The Turkish government’s interest in the health field is clearly highlighted by its work on the establishment of large medical cities, the latest of which contained 4,000 beds in Ankara, the most important of which are: Bahçeşehir Medical City, located in Istanbul within the European section, as it is the largest medical city in all of Europe.

Features of studying in Turkey

Turkey allows the student to get acquainted with diverse cultures, with its different communities around the world, it embraces Arabs, Europeans, Asians, Africans, and other communities and nationalities.

The options available to study biomedical engineering in Turkey are varied, as universities are spread in it, giving the student more flexibility in choosing the university that suits him, and the number of universities in Turkey according to the statistics of 2019 reached 209 universities, the majority of which are public universities of 129, while the number of private universities is 77 universities.

The large number of universities results in the intensification of competition among them, and therefore there is a strong motivation to develop their services continuously, and this benefits students through what they find of better educational services, especially with the presence of universities that seek excellence globally and achieve advanced results in this, and emerged attractive universities for students from different places around the world, such as Bahçeşehir University, Sabancı and Özyeğin.

What is Biomedical Engineering?

It is also called the engineering of medical technologies, and  this science studies the human being geometrically, as it is distinguished from many engineering disciplines  in that it  combines engineering and medicine, it is a synonymous and auxiliary specialty of medicine that studies the human body or organism in order to design the appropriate technology, such as prosthetics.

It is an area characterized by continuous development, due to technological development and the increasing need for devices that support the efficiency and effectiveness of the work of doctors, and the treatment of diseases, medical and technical problems.

This specialization therefore allows you to progress continuously, as well as make a high income.

It includes medical devices, as well as technical and administrative aspects, such as: hospital management, prosthetic production institutions and various medical equipment.

Why study Biomedical Engineering in Turkey?

Universities that teach biomedical engineering in Turkey have a set of general qualities that have earned education in Turkey a good reputation that has made many people from different places around the world seek to learn in them, without denying the disparity between these universities in their qualities, including:

Universities have laboratories and laboratories with modern educational facilities, have a cadre of specialized academics with degrees from inside and outside Turkey, and have dedicated student clubs and workshops for engineering students.

Turkish universities are keen to establish strong relations with international universities to help them to continuously develop and maintain the modernity of the technologies and equipment they offer.

Because of the strength of universities in Turkey, the degrees they offer are recognized by many Arab and European universities.
