1 BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING UNDERGRADUATE HANDBOOK 11/8/2010 What is Biomedical Engineering Biomedical engineering is a discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health through activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. In other words, biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field combining engineering, basic sciences and medicine. Biomedical engineering produces a better understanding of How the body works. How the body becomes diseased. Ways to prevent/protect the body from disease. Novel mechanisms to reverse the disease process. Novel ways to repair diseased tissue. New devices to replace diseased tissue. Biomedical Engineers develop devices and procedures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices. Many do research, along with medical scientists, to develop and evaluate systems and products such as artificial organs, prostheses (artificial devices that replace missing body parts), instrumentation, medical information systems, and health management and care delivery systems. Biomedical engineers also may design devices used in various medical procedures, imaging systems such as magnetic resonance imaging
