A biomedical engineer uses traditional

engineering expertise

to analyze and solve problems in biology and medicine, providing an overall enhancement of health care.

WHAT IS A BIOMEDICAL ENGINEER

?

Slide3

Development of artificial organs (hearing aids,

cardiac pacemakers

, artificial kidneys and hearts', blood oxygenators, synthetic blood vessels, joints, arms, and legs).

Automated

patient monitoring (during surgery or in intensive care, healthy persons in unusual environments, such as astronauts in space or underwater divers at great depth).Blood chemistry sensors (potassium, sodium, O², CO² and pH), both invasive and non-invasive.Advanced therapeutic and surgical devices (laser system for eye surgery, automated delivery of insulin, etc.).Application of expert systems and artificial intelligence to clinical decision making (computer-based systems for diagnosing diseases).Design of optimal clinical laboratories (computerized analyzer for blood samples, cardiac catheterization laboratory, etc.).

ACTIVITIES

Slide4

Design

of medical imaging systems (

ultrasound, computer assisted tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, etc

.).

Computer modeling of physiologic systems (blood pressure control, renal, function, visual and auditory nervous circuits, etc.).Biomaterials design (mechanical, transport and biocompatibility properties of implantable artificial materials).Biomechanics of human movement (gait analysis, etc.).Tissue mechanics (properties of bone, tendon, skin and changes with remodeling, injury, healing, etc).Sports medicine (rehabilitation, external support devices, etc.). Plus the contribution on research into injury mechanism, understanding de nervous system, cancer research, mechanobiology, electrophysiology.

Slide6

Become a good engineer and acquire a working understanding of the life sciences and BME

terminology.

Good communication skills are vital to talk with professionals having medical, technical, and other backgrounds.

HOW TO PREPARE

FOR A CAREER IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING?

Slide7

High school preparation:

Follow an engineering discipline with life science course work

Courses in calculus, physics, chemistry and biology

If possible, Advanced Placement courses in these areas

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A CAREER IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING?

Slide8

At the college level:

Students usually select engineering as a field of study, then choose a discipline concentration within engineering.

Some students major in biomedical engineering, while others may major in chemical, electrical, or mechanical engineering with a specialty in biomedical engineering.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A CAREER IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING?

Slide9

At the college level (continued):

As career plans develop, seek advice on the degree of specialization and the educational levels appropriate to goals and interests.

Many students continue their education in graduate school where they obtain valuable biomedical research experience at the Masters or Doctoral level.

When entering the job market, a graduate should be able to point to well defined engineering skills for application to the biomedical field, with some project or in-the-field experience in biomedical engineering.HOW TO PREPARE FOR A CAREER IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING?
