Biomedical engineering applies the principles of engineering and design concepts to medicine and biology with the intention of improving the overall healthcare of society. Complex medical technologies is used in the prognosis, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the sick and injured. With 10-year job growth of 72%, the area is growing exponentially and the demand for biomedical engineers is increasing rapidly.
Biomedical engineers are employed in the industry, in hospitals, in research facilities of educational and medical institutions, in teaching, and in government regulatory agencies. They often serve a coordinating or interfacing function, using their background in both engineering and medical fields. In industry, they may create designs where an in-depth understanding of living systems and of technology is essential.

Biomedical Engineering is broadly defined as the application of Engineering and Technology in the field of medicine and surgery. Bio-medical Engineering is not an emerging field anymore. It has planted its feet concretely and helped the medical healthcare system made advancements since the 1900s. Biomedical engineering has brought together the knowledge of diverse fields with a focus on applications in medical sciences. It abetted the healthcare professionals from looking inside the patient’s body to rehabilitate the paralyzed ones.
RIPHAH International University is among the pioneer for introducing the exciting program of B.Sc in Biomedical engineering in 1998. Since then, the department of Biomedical engineering has produced top-quality graduates who are not only working in the country’s leading organizations but also earned a name for the country by contributing in the relevant fields exceptionally well in foreign countries.
The future prospect of Biomedical engineering is very bright. The exponential increase in population will need more hospitals and enhancement of existing healthcare facilities. We will need biomedical engineers to work in hospitals to manage and maintain biomedical equipment. Many more Biomedical professionals would be in demand to design and develop smart instruments. Companies would be requiring engineers to introduce their instruments to the end-users in order to compete with other manufacturers. Universities would need to recruit experts to offer Biomedical engineering programs and meet the market demand by producing more Biomedical engineers.
