Biomedical Engineers use engineering problem solving tools and medical science knowledge to improve outcomes for patients. Examples of biomedical engineering systems include: MRI, CT, ultra-sound, and other imaging modalities; EKGs, oxygen meters, and measurement instruments used in hospitals; cancer-fighting pharmaceuticals, cell and tissue engineering, and other regenerative medicine applications; and thousands more procedures and devices that diagnose conditions, sustain health, and fight disease.
Engineers are creative problem solvers who are essential to our health, happiness, and safety. Engineering students celebrate discovery, design, creativity, imagination, innovation, and contribution to the world we live in. No profession unleashes the spirit of innovation like engineering. From research to real-world applications, engineers constantly discover how to improve our lives by creating bold new solutions that connect science to life in unexpected, forward-thinking ways. Few professions turn so many ideas into so many realities. Few have such a direct and positive effect on people's everyday lives. We are counting on engineers and their imaginations to help us meet the needs of the 21st century.
