Biomedical Engineering is a relatively new branch of engineering that involves the use of cutting-edge technologies to help improve human healthcare. Biomedical engineers are involved in the design and creation of medical devices and implants such as stents, instruments, and materials for clinical use. They also apply their engineering skills to problems in human biology and are at the forefront of developments in human medicine in the 21st century, enabling the medical profession to diagnose and treat disease, and repair or replace damaged living tissue. This degree program was developed as a result of the need within the biomedical industry for highly skilled personnel. Locally based biomedical companies, of which there is a significant cluster, were involved in its design. It, therefore, remains highly relevant to the needs of industry while giving students full training in engineering design principles and their application to human biology in an interdisciplinary environment. Related, relevant subjects that are covered over the course of the degree program include biomedical instrumentation, tissue engineering, and biomechanics. If you want an interesting career that involves the application of engineering principles to medicine and biology, this may suit you. Biomedical engineers assist clinicians to analyze and solve problems in biology and medicine, thereby helping to sustain or improve life. Both traditional and modern engineering principles and new technology are used. Biomedical engineers are also challenged to ensure that advances in technology keep pace with advances in medicine and that the diagnostic, life-support or life-enhancing tools they create remain compatible with the human body.
