Biomedical Concentration

Diagnotistic device

Biomedical engineers use engineering ingenuity to solve medical and health-related problems. They work in research and development, in tandem with engineers, scientists, and medical experts, to create devices such as total joint replacements, artificial organs, prostheses, and insulin pumps. They also work to develop medical information systems and care delivery systems. Speciality areas include biomechanics, tissue engineering, medical imaging, and bioinformatics.
