We know the different engineering fields like Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Civil, and Computer science, but in Biomedical engineering is quit different. all the engineering departments like Mechanical engineers deals with Machines, Electrical engineers deals with current(power supply), Electronics engineers deals with circuits, and Computer science engineers deals with Computers(software and hardware), but in Biomedical engineers little different, We need to study and apply Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical, Computer science and Biological Knowledge in the medical field.
Why Biomedical Engineering ?
Biomedical engineering bridges the gap between engineering and medicine, it is combination of design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences in order to improve healthcare diagnosis, therapy and monitoring.
Reason behind studying the Electrical, Electronics, computer science and Biological streams
Any instruments without power supply we can't run the instruments, and also converting AC to DC, Transformer, Electrical machines, Connection in Electrical circuits we should study the Electrical Basics.
In Electronics circuits contains Diode, transistors, Capacitor, Resistor, Inductor, and Relay, with the help of this components we can make instruments.
Before we make Medical device, we should in-depth knowledge in human anatomy and Physiology, understand the human body parts and its specific function, then only we will make medical device to interact with human body.
What are all the roles for Biomedical Engineers
Design systems and products, such as artificial internal organs, artificial devices that replace body parts, and machines for diagnosing medical problems
Install, adjust, maintain, repair, or provide technical support for biomedical equipment
Train clinicians and other personnel on the proper use of equipment
Evaluate the safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of biomedical equipment
Work with life scientists, chemists, and medical scientists to research the engineering aspects of biological systems of humans and animals
They often serve a coordinating function, using their background in both engineering and medicine. For example, in industry, they may create products for which an in-depth understanding of living systems and technology is essential. Also, they frequently work in research and development or in quality assurance.
