Interdepartmental Program of Biomedical Engineering

BME

Biomedical Engineering is a discipline that promotes the production of knowledge in engineering and science to improve human health through interdisciplinary activities that combine engineering techniques and analysis with biomedical sciences and clinical practice. In the majority of areas related to health, prevention, diagnosis and treatment, there are problems whose solution can be found only with a scientific / engineering approach. Such problems include, for example, the design and development of diagnostic technologies and devices, systems of care, prosthetic parts, or interfaces that enable people with disabilities to use computers.

The ever increasing complexity of medical technology has significantly increased the demand for trained personnel who can fill the gap between clinical applications and engineering and technology. Biomedical Engineering is usually based on one of the traditional branches of engineering such as Electrical or Mechanical Engineering. A biomedical engineer also possesses expertise in Computer Science, Biology, and Physics. This combination of knowledge makes them capable of playing an important role in the health sector.

Due to the breadth of knowledge, biomedical engineers are employed in medical equipment companies, hospitals, government agencies, and academic institutions. Specialized employment areas include designing medical equipment and instruments, design and consulting services for specialized equipment depending on customer needs, developing, manufacturing and testing medical products, technology management in hospitals, etc.
