What does a Biomedical Engineer do?

A Biomedical Engineer uses science and technology to develop equipment that can assist in the treatment of illnesses or help people to recover from injuries. This could involve designing, creating or maintaining systems such as health monitoring machines (surgery devices or ICU machines), therapeutic systems (tissue engineering, drug delivery automation, laser for surgery), and diagnostic systems (medical imaging such as ultrasound or MRI machines).

Most Biomedical Engineers will work in a hospital, providing assistance in the selection, use and maintenance of different medical equipment. It is also possible for Biomedical Engineers to work in research institutions or marketing companies in technical advisory roles.
