More About Biomedical Engineering

"Bioengineering is an interdisciplinary field in which the principles and tools of mechanical, materials, electrical, and chemical engineering are applied to biomedical and biological problems. Bioengineering plays an important role in medicine in projects that range from basic research in physiology to advances in biotechnology and the improvement of health care delivery in the clinic"

"Biomedical engineering is an exciting field that is concerned with the application of engineering and science methodologies, to the analysis of biological and physiological problems and to the delivery of health care. Biomedical engineering involves developing devices and procedures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices."
