What Is BME?

Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a closely related network of life sciences, the physical sciences and engineering. It is a field in which engineering principles and techniques are applied to the life sciences and medicine. It covers a wide spectrum of activities which includes the development of artificial organs and limbs, implantable medical devices, tissue engineering, biomedical instrumentation, computing in medical research and diagnosis, signal or image processing, clinical engineering, rehabilitation engineering and cardiovascular, neurological, and respiratory engineering. The diagnostic and therapeutic tools available to the physician entering the twenty-first century represent complex and intricate applications of engineering.
