Biomedical Engineering: A Closer Look

Biomedical engineering is the combination of engineering, biological science and medicine. The practice focuses on improving the quality of life through experimental and analytical techniques. Biomedical engineering is influenced by many engineering and medical subfields. Biomedical engineers will usually focus on a particular branch or a related branch such as, bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, biomechanics, cellular, tissue and genetic engineering. Biomedical engineers will work with healthcare professionals. They will work with artificial organisms, medical imaging systems, and advanced surgical devices. Those interested in biomedical engineering should seek a Bachelors or Graduate program accredited by American Board for Engineering and Technology.
