What is Biomedical Engineering ?
Biomedical engineering is the application of techniques drawn from engineering to the analysis and solution of problems in biology and medicine.
Biomedical engineering applies the techniques of all classical engineering disciplines to problems encountered in living systems.
Increasing focus on health issues, aging populations around the world – growing expectations of the delivery of better medical devices & equipment designed by Biomedical Engineers.
‘Employment of Biomedical Engineers is expected to grow faster than all occupations in US through to 2012’
