Bio & Biomedical Engineering


Find out more information about Bio & Biomedical Engineering

Bioengineering and biomedical engineering are two fields of study that overlap and form a science-based discipline focusing on elements of biology and engineering. Biomedical engineering is concerned with applying the biological science to medical innovation with the help of modern technology devices. The main purpose of bio and biomedical engineering is to improve the healthcare area. Bio prostheses, micro implants, imaging machinery like the MRI and tissue growth are some of the notable achievements of this study field. Sub-disciplines of bio and biomedical engineering are: biomimetic, systems biology, biomechanics, medical imaging, clinical engineering.

A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in biomedical engineering equips students with the ability to design biomedical equipment products that are practical as well as cost effective and aesthetic, and they will also know how to evaluate their safety. Students will learn to combine technical knowledge with creativity and will develop a high attention to detail.

Graduates from bio and biomedical engineering can find job opportunities such as: bioengineer, clinical engineer/scientist, biotechnologist, medical device quality assurance specialist, biomechanics engineer, rehabilitation engineer, bioengineering researcher – in a wide range of areas.
