Biomedical Engineering combines engineering techniques with an appreciation of the functioning of the human body, whether healthy, injured or diseased. This course is designed to provide Biomedical Engineering Technologists for the hospital and medical device manufacturing environments.
Biomedical Engineering combines engineering with an appreciation of the functioning of the human body, whether healthy, injured or diseased. In the clinical context, biomedical engineers play a key role in designing, sourcing and maintaining equipment, facilities and services within hospitals. Products include prosthetic devices to provide the disabled with tools to improve their quality of life, disposable plastic and wound care products, and precision metal implants including pacemakers, microelectronic devices, orthopaedic implants, diagnostics, contact lenses and stents.
