What is Biomedical Engineering?

Biomedical Engineering is the study of improving patient’s health through safe, efficient and cost-effective management and maintenance of medical equipment.

When you enter any engineering discipline you must have a strong interest in science and mathematics in a way that allows you to solve problems of a highly technical nature. For Biomedical Engineering, you must be willing to add the life sciences and medical knowledge necessary to understand the frame work of the problems on which you will work.

For Biomedical Engineering, you must be willing to add the life sciences and medical knowledge necessary to understand the frame work of the problems on which you will work.

Biomedical Engineering is the combination of engineering and medicine in which a professional in this field will work with other engineers, basic laboratory scientists, physicians and nurses. A course in biomedical engineering would equip students to design and test new medical equipment, set up and maintain existing equipment, evaluate the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of the equipment, research reports and many more. Strong communications skills are essential and often the Biomedical Engineer becomes the general interpreter for such widely educated individuals; the one who knows the language of both engineering and medicine.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Biomedical Engineering course?

Team Player

You’ll almost always be a part of a much larger team, with each cog playing a vital role. Whether it’s people working under or above you, you need to put the team first at all times

Patient

You will deal with mostly people of age, and as such, you will need to be patient as they would take time explaining their issues particularly if their hearing problems have progressed to the latter stages.

Visionary

The field of biomedical sciences is hugely important as new medical advancements are made every single day. As such, you’ll need to think ahead to come up with new solutions to existing conditions that has not been solved.
