Biomedical engineering is an emerging field that involves applying physical, chemical, mathematical, computer science and engineering principles to the analysis of biological, medical, behavioral and health-related problems. Biomedical engineers develop innovative devices and procedures to help prevent, diagnose and treat diseases. It relies on an in-depth understanding of science and engineering fundamentals, combined with a broad knowledge of physiological and anatomical systems.
