Definition of a Biomedical Engineer

Biomedical engineers apply electrical, mechanical, chemical, optical, and other engineering principles to understand, modify, or control biologic (i.e., human and animal) systems, as well as design and manufacture products that can monitor physiologic functions and assist in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Biomedical Engineering Diversity

The breadth of activity of biomedical engineers is significant. The field has moved from being concerned primarily with the development of medical devices in the 1950s and 1960s and to include a more wide-ranging set of activities.  The field of biomedical engineering now includes many new career areas and, like medical practice it is unlikely that any single person can acquire expertise that encompasses the entire field.

Biomedical Engineering Areas
  • Application of engineering system analysis (physiologic modeling, simulation, and control) to biologic problems.
  • Detection, measurement, and monitoring of physiologic signals (i.e., biosensors and biomedical instrumentation)
  • Devices for replacement or augmentation of bodily functions (artificial organs)
  • Computer analysis of patient-related data and clinical decision making (medical. informatics & artificial intelligence)
  • Medical imaging, i.e., the graphic display of anatomic detail or physiologic function.

Typical Biomedical Engineering Pursuits
  • Research in new materials for implanted artificial organs
  • Development of new diagnostic instruments for blood analysis
  • Computer modeling of the function of the human heart
  • Writing software for analysis of medical research data
  • Analysis of medical device hazards for safety and efficacy
  • Development of new diagnostic imaging systems

Biomedical Engineers use engineering principles to solve health related and medical problems.  They do a lot of research in conjunction with with life scientists, chemists, and medical professionals to design medical devices like artificial hearts, pacemakers, dialysis machines, and surgical lasers.  Some conduct research on biological and other life systems or investigate ways to modernize laboratory and clinical procedures. 

Frequently, biomedical engineers supervise biomedical equipment maintenance technicians, investigate medical equipment failure, and advise hospitals about purchasing and installing new equipment. 

Biomedical engineers work in hospitals, universities, industry, and research laboratories.

Educational Requirements:  

Students should take the most challenging science, math, and English courses available in high school. 

All biomedical engineers have at least a bachelor's degree in engineering.  Many have advanced graduate degrees as well.  Courses of study include a sound background in mechanical, chemical, or industrial engineering, and specialized biomedical training.  Most programs last from four to six years, and all states require biomedical engineers to pass examinations and be licensed.

For free calculations go to the Calculator page.  The calculators should be used with caution.  Many of these calculators are not verified and are only intended to provide for a starting point in performing a design calculations.  All final design calculations should  be performed using verified and validated programs or calculators that have documented evidence of the verification and validation.
