General assessment on the programme content:

a) Language / General Studies : Adequate / Appropriate

b) Science / Maths / Computer : Adequate / Appropriate

c) Core / Major Engineering Courses : Adequate / Appropriate

d) Engineering Elective Courses : Adequate / Appropriate

e) Supporting Courses : Adequate / Appropriate

f) Final Year Project : Adequate / Appropriate

The existing curriculum seems appropriate but other views will also be considered during next curriculum review.


General assessment on the facilities:

a) Laboratory facilities : Unsatisfactory (during his visit)

b) Computing facilities : Satisfactory

c) Library facilities : Satisfactory

The laboratories facilities have been improved since the visit. A few lab/experiment equipments have been acquired such as the EEG acquisition system, Ultrasound machine, LabView Software and a 4-Channel Integrated Pre-Amplifier. More equipment is in the acquiring process.


General assessment on examination:

a) Examination regulation : Yes

b) Criteria for pass / fail : Satisfactory c) System of Assessment : Satisfactory

The existing regulations and procedures are adequate. Nevertheless, the gap between professor’s expectation and the student’s knowledge will be addressed.


Recommendations and overall comments on the quality and output of the course/programme:

i) Recommendations:

“After adjusting the credits for comparison, it seems that the level is at the lower end of aBachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) study programme. It seems not appropriate to reducethe number of credits any further”.

Curriculum is in the reviewing process by the curriculum review task force.


Overall comments on the quality and output of the bachelor degree programme:

i)“Overall are satisfied. The programme has good basic structure and the focus of the programme is clear”.

The content of the programme will be maintained and will be improved as necessary.

Curriculum lack of formal course in introduction to medicine and anatomy.

Introduce a new course named “Anatomy and Introduction to Medicine”. Courses of “Electronic Devices”, “Electronic Circuits”, and “Electronic System” transformed into two courses: “Basic Electronics”, and “Electronic Circuit and System”.

Prof. Dr. Maamar Bettayeb, from Sharjah University, U.A.E.

Number of elective offered at final year is not sufficient

Three elective courses offered in the final year, i.e. two in first semester and one in second semester.


Material covered in mathematics is in the low side: lack of linear algebra.

A meeting with the respective faculty will be held to discuss about this matter
