Welcome to Biomedical Engineering:

Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles to the understanding and solving of medical problems. Medical technology is rapidly advancing and this creates demand for biomedical engineers, who are able to provide engineering solutions for major health challenges that will face our society in the near future. Biomedical engineers are actively involved in research and development work in all areas of medicine, from developing better prosthetics to improving cancer imaging to regenerative medicine. The continued advancement of medical technology and the many unsolved problems medicine suggest that biomedical engineers will continue to play a very important role in the development and evaluation of medical technology.
