Biomedical Engineering bridges the gap between biomedical science and engineering. It involves the application of engineering principles to create solutions for healthcare and generally concerns with the development and design of medical products. Biomedical engineers collaborate with doctors and researchers to develop medical systems, equipment or devices that can solve clinical problems. Biomedical engineers not just create equipment and devices, but computer systems and software used in healthcare as well.

Biomedical Engineering (BME) improves human health by applying engineering principles and methods to medical problems. Biomedical engineers might find themselves developing:

  • Sensor that identify cancer.
  • A device that mimics the blood brain barrier for use in drug testing.
  • Neural probes to treat Parkinson’s with deep Brain simulation.
  • Computer models that suggest how complex proteins are assembled.
  • Design of the instruments of medical imaging.
  • Waveform to image the body with MRI.
  • Ultrasound therapies to treat tumors non- invasively.
  • Design of life supporting instruments devices for ICU.
  • Design the prosthetics arms and legs.
  • Design the artificial organs.

Several opportunities exist for students pursuing a course in biomedical sciences in India. It is a huge, happening subject with immense opportunities for management, laboratory work, education, research, and consultancy. Once you become competent in the subject, you can work in the private sector or the numerous national healthcare laboratories. Those who do not find themselves appropriate for standard hospital careers may choose for health protection agencies, or work in forensic science departments.
