Biomedical Engineers are essential to advancing modern medicine. They research and develop new medical equipment such as prosthetic devices, artificial organs, and metal joint replacements. They also improve the safety and efficiency of hospital equipment. Biomedical engineers use their knowledge of biology, medicine, technology, and mechanical engineering to solve the complex problems of medical care. Universities, hospitals, research facilities, and government agencies employ biomedical engineers. It’s a relatively new field of study, but many engineering schools have undergraduate programs in bioengineering that will prepare you for a career in this dynamic and exciting field.
