Biomedical engineering is a booming career field as health and technology are coming together to revolutionize the field of medicine.
Employment of biomedical engineers are projected to grow 15% over the next ten years, faster than the average of all occupations. Biomedical engineering bridges the gap between engineering and medicine, seamlessly combining the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences in order to improve healthcare diagnosis, monitoring and therapy.
The study of biomedical engineering involves a broad array of diagnostic and therapeutic applications. This branch of engineering and sciences is a fascinating multidisciplinary area of study that entails the application of engineering techniques in order to assist practitioners like doctors and physicians in their healthcare practices. Study of this branch also helps them in the rehabilitation of disabled patients.
