About Us

“We are living in a period where combining biomedicine and engineering is needed to answer many unsolved scientific questions.” ~Seung Baek Biomedical engineering is the application of the engineering principles to medicine and biology to design and create biomedical equipment & devices such as artificial internal organs, replacements for body parts, and machines for diagnosing medical problems, computer systems, and software used in healthcare. Biomedical engineering focuses on the advances that improve health care treatment (for e.g. diagnosis, therapy). Specialty areas within the field of biomedical engineering are: Biomechanics, Biomaterials, Bioinstrumentation, Bioinformatics, Systems Physiology, Rehabilitation Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Clinical Engineering. Some examples of Biomedical Engineering innovations are artificial limbs, prosthetics, imaging machines and various other medical devices.
