Biomedical engineering combines fundamental concepts of engineering, medicine, and biology in the development of new approaches to the medical industry such as new devices, processes, materials, and systems. These innovations are used to close the gap between engineering and medicine, and to improve the rapidly growing field of medical practice and health care delivery.

There are a number of different specializations within biomedical engineering, including:

  • Biomechatronics
  • Biomaterials
  • Biomechanics
  • Cellular, Tissue, and Genetic Engineering
  • Clinical Engineering
  • Medical Imaging
  • Orthopaedic Bioengineering
  • Rehabilitation engineering

Biomedical/ pharmaceutical engineers must be able to propose, use and evaluate engineering tools and approaches; combine engineering and life science modelling; formulate and solve engineering problems in the biomedical domain; and identify and manage processing and interpretation problems of biomedicine.

Educational Courses in Biomedical/ Pharmaceutical Engineering

Students who study biomedical/ pharmaceutical engineering usually begin their education by gaining an understanding of general engineering and the life sciences. Education courses start with mathematics and statistics, before moving on to more advanced multidimensional biomedical signal generation and analysis, medical informatics and biomedical modelling and simulation.

There are a variety of study options available worldwide within Biomedical/ Pharmaceutical Engineering:

Careers in Biomedical/ Pharmaceutical Engineering

There are a wide range of career options available for graduates of biomedical/ pharmaceutical engineering programs. Biomedical engineers may be employed in hospitals, universities, and research facilities of medical and educational institutions, often in a coordinating or interfacing function. Biomedical engineers working in research institutions often oversee equipment and laboratories, or collaborate with researchers in medicine, nursing, etc.

Many biomedical engineers have advanced education in another field, such as an M.D. degree, allowing them to combine working with patients with an advanced knowledge of the technology. The field of biomedical/ pharmaceutical engineering is a promising industry to enter, with a wide variety of exciting job prospects for science- and engineer-oriented minds.
