What is Biomedical Engineering?

The world of medicine is changing rapidly, with new treatments and diagnostic tools being developed and tested every day. Many life-enhancing breakthroughs in medicine resulted from the combination of engineering and biology. As a biomedical engineer, you will work on the cutting edge of the medical field, finding new ways to enhance our health and well-being. You could investigate new ways to diagnose and treat diseases like Alzheimer’s and diabetes. You could design implants and prosthetics to help people with injuries, disabilities or diseases, or you could design high-tech medical equipment to be used in hospitals and doctor’s offices. A bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering is also a great way to prepare for medical, dental or pharmaceutical school.
