What is Biomedical Engineering?
Biomedical engineering
is a multiple discipline
and high technology
area.
It is to provide
solutions for health
care industries and
services.

Biomedical Engineering is Exciting
It is important: Health Caring and Life Saving
It is profound and challenging:
Nobel Prizes in Medicine in 1979, for the development of Computed
Tomography (CT) and in 2003 for the development of Magnetic
Resonance Imaging (MRI).
It is High Tech
