2 What is Bioengineering? Biology meets Engineering The term bioengineering is often used interchangeably with: Biomedical Engineering synonymous (as far as accreditation goes ABET) Biological Engineering not the same Biotechnology not the same Bioengineering is the application of engineering design to solve problems that involve living systems.
4 Jobs in Bioengineering Developing implantable medical devices such as cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators; artificial blood vessels, kidneys, joints Using machines to monitor patients during an operation in intensive care, including the heart s electrical activity and rate, blood pressure, and body temperature Designing noninvasive instruments for monitoring, diagnosis, and rehabilitation, such as automated analysis of medical images Teaching, managing, sales or consulting Designing clinical laboratories, hospitals and other health care delivery units which emphasize patient and employee safety Research: using engineering approaches to aid the study of biology, disease, injury and therapeutics.
5 Why become a Bioengineer? Because you have a high interest in: Life Sciences & Applied Science/Technology
