Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary area of study that integrates knowledge from engineering with the biomedical sciences. Modern Biomedical Engineering is a very diverse field. Biomedical Engineers work in systems ranging from medical imaging to the design of artificial organs. Some major research advances in Biomedical Engineering include the left ventricular assist device (LVAD), artificial joints, kidney dialysis, bioengineered skin, angioplasty, computed tomography (CT), and flexible endoscopes. Students who choose Biomedical Engineering are interested in being of service to human health but do not routinely interact directly with patients.
