Find out more information about Bio & Biomedical Engineering

How would you like to be a doctor, a scientist, and an engineer all at the same time? Well, soon-to-be Doctor Frankenstein, there’s a great opportunity for you with a Master’s degrees in Bio- & Biomedical Engineering. Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering are two related fields that each deal with bringing technological advances to medicine and biological sciences.

A strong understanding of both biological processes and engineering can allow you to improve the medical field, introducing new technologies to the healthcare industry. Students in this discipline have a vital role to play in, for example, building new machines or medical tools, or figuring out effective ways to manage injuries through prosthetics or micro implants.

Bio- & Biomedical Engineering is a subfield of Engineering & Technology, and involves the same mathematical, analytical, and conceptual knowledge that you would get in any of the related fields, such as Robotics, Mechatronics, Materials Science, and Engineering. Similarly, though, you get to be immersed in the biological and medical fields as well.

Biomedical engineer graduates have lots of promising opportunities and career prospects. You can find exciting work in the following occupations: clinical engineer/scientist, medical device developer, biomechanics engineer, bioengineering researcher.
