What is engineering?
In my perspective, engineering combines the fields of science and math to solve real world problems, that improve the world around us.
What does a Biomedical engineer do?
Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. di agnostic or therapeutic).
My day as a Biomedical Engineer...
I would start of the day by waking up and reading books on prosthetics
I would then go to the hospital
I would then talk to my nurses about todays work, and the matireal enginner would come in to help me with making artifical body parts
I would then go to meeting with the hospital treasurer to see the growth in the amount of patients that come to the hospital in need of prosthetics
I would then meet with a few paitients and call it a day
One Project I would like to take a lead on...
Have you ever met anyone who has an artificial limb? Chances are you have—without even knowing it. Modern prostheses (as replacement limbs are properly known) work so effectively and look so convincing that you wouldn't even know someone was wearing one. People with prosthetic legs can often climb stairs, walk, swim, and run as well as though they were using natural limbs, while prosthetic arms and hands have advanced to the point where they give individual control of all five fingers. You might think they're boring or mundane, but prosthetic limbs are among the world's truly great inventions: by boosting independence they boost optimism and both these things dramatically improve people's lives. Let's take a closer look at how these amazing devices work!
How do prosthetics help people in need?
