What is Biomedical Engineering?
Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine to improve human health through cross-disciplinary activities integrating the engineering sciences with biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Students work in the development of new devices, algorithms, processes, and systems that advance biology and medicine and improve medical practice and health care delivery. Many students chose BME because it is people-oriented.
Perhaps the most archetypical BME device is the cardiac pacemaker which senses the patient's current heart rhythm and rate and will electrically stimulate the heart to regularize an abnormal rate or rhythm. More...
Is Biomedical Engineering right for me?
When you enter any engineering discipline you must have a strong interest in science and mathematics in a way that allows you to solve problems of a highly technical nature. For BME you must be willing to add the life sciences and medical knowledge necessary to understand the frame work of the problems on which you will work. More...
