Learning Perspective

Biomedical engineers design electrical circuits, software to run medical equipment, or computer simulations to test new drug therapies. In addition, they design and build artificial body parts, such as hip and knee joints. In some cases, they develop the materials needed to make the replacement body parts. There have been dramatic advances in biomedical engineering in recent years and its scope has been expanding rapidly. The large amounts of biological data obtained from genomic, molecular and cellular levels of studies have led to increasing needs of quantitative treatment and engineering analysis to synthesize the complex information into a systematic body of knowledge that will lead to the emergence of new concepts and technologies

Biomedical Engineering is a bridge 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 becomes future of technology innovation as interfacing of human and machine increase. It provides technology involved to overcome the defect in a human body, prevention and exact prediction of disease. It reduces human error. The industry opens the employment and R&D in the sector.

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 brains 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.

There are plenty of opportunities for biomedical professionals in the country and abroad, in government organizations to private hospitals ones. Some of them are mention below
