About

Profile of the biomedical engineer

Biomedical engineers specialize in solving technological problems that require an understanding of how the human body functions. They combine a knowledge of the synthetic and analytic methods of physics and chemistry, computational methods of mathematics, and measurement and control systems of electrical engineering with a thorough medical and biological foundation. The Biomedical Engineering program is delivered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
