Bio-Medical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering (BME) can be defined as the study and application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. It is a combination of technical knowledge in biology and medicine to improve life quality. This interdisciplinary field that bridges life science and engineering has an important role in prevention, therapy and rehabilitation. It combines the principles of two dynamic professions, Medicine and Engineering. BME is concerned with the development and manufacture of prostheses, medical devices, diagnostic devices, drugs and other therapies. This unique field encompasses bio-instrumentation, bio-materials, bio-mechanics, medical imaging, genetic engineering, orthopedic surgery, cellular and tissue engineering.
