Biomedical Engineering

 Hi Friends!!!


Today we are going to discuss about Biomedical Engineering.


Biomedical Engineering is a emerging field in healthcare. Being a healthcare professional, it is very important to have knowledge about Biomedical Engineering.


Let's get into the topic.


WHAT IS BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING?


The Biomedical Engineering is a interdisciplinary bridge between medicine and engineering. Engineering a innovative field, hence biomedical engineering can be termed as a combination of engineering innovations in the field of healthcare. Biomedical Engineering mainly focuses on improving human healthcare at all levels.


The Biomedical Engineering is a combination of multiple disciplines like mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science engineering, chemical engineering, material science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, mathematics, data science. All these disciplines are integrated with respect to human aspects like human anatomy and physiology, human health, tissue engineering, genetic engineering, biomechanics, hospital technology, healthcare technology to foster innovations in healthcare.

NOTABLE BIOMEDICAL INNOVATIONS


There are large number of Biomedical Innovation out there. Few are the important developments include X-Ray machine, which plays a important role in the field of healthcare diagnostics. Apart from X-rays, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasound are major innovations in diagnostic healthcare.


Pacemaker and Defibrillator is an important innovation in healthcare which saves many people with heart disabilities.


Other notable innovations include artificial hip and knee joints.


Now a days, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning concepts are widely combined with Healthcare Technologies to improve human health.


VARIOUS FIELD OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING


There are numerous numbers of fields in biomedical engineering which are as follows.


Biomedical Instrumentation.

Rehabilitation Engineering.

Medical Imaging.

Clinical Engineering.

Biomaterials.

Biomechanics.

Biomedical Signal Processing.

Medical Electronics.

Life sciences,

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in healthcare.

 

The Biomedical Engineer can carry out a research in any of the above-mentioned fields and make multiple innovations based on their level of understanding of the concepts.

 

EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF BIOMEDICAL

ENGINEER


To become a Biomedical Engineer people can either do their Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering or they can do Masters (M. Tech or MS) in Biomedical specialization after completing Bachelors in a different discipline.


After completing bachelors in biomedical engineering, students can opt for MBA Courses. There are few MBA courses suitable for Biomedical Engineers like MBA in Hospital Management and MBA in Healthcare Management. However Biomedical Engineers are also eligible for other core disciplines of MBA

 

WHAT ARE THE JOB SCOPES OF BIOMEDICAL

ENGINEERING?


Since Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary field, a Biomedical Engineer can work in various Medical device companies, life sciences companies, software development companies, healthcare startups and also in other service based healthcare companies.


The Biomedical Engineer can also be a entrepreneur by creating their own startup which can fulfill a healthcare need in a particular segment of the market.


The Biomedical Engineer can also work in hospitals. The roles of Biomedical Engineer in hospital will be to assist the clinicians and doctors in handling medical equipment’s, addressing medical equipment breakdowns, maintenance activities, maintaining necessary documents related to medical equipment’s, purchasing of equipment’s, discarding of medical equipment scrap etc.


In Medical Device companies, a Biomedical Engineer will get an opportunity to work in following profiles.


Research and Development.

Quality Assurance

Quality Control.

Validation Engineer.

Clinical Engineer.

Manufacturing Engineer.

Regulatory affairs.

Maintenance Engineer

Application Specialist.

Sales and Service.


Now I hope you have acquired some knowledge about Biomedical Engineering. We will meet again with another valuable healthcare topic.
