Can we fix it? Yes, we can!! Bob, the biomedical engineer

General description

In the 21st century medicine almost always depends on the use of medical equipment and instrumentation. Because doctors can't make these machines themselves, engineers are entering the biomedical field...

And it's going further! Remember Robocop, half man, half machine. These things are going on in the real world! Implants, pacemakers and biomedical sensors are implanted into the human body to restore health and to save lifes. People who lose a leg or a hand get a new one, made of steel or plastics.

Medicine is lump without machines and engineers!

So are you interested in biomedical engineering? Do you want to know about computer aided surgery? Ever looked at the human body from a scientific point of view? Apply to this course, get interested and maybe some time your equipment will save human lifes!
