What are the different aspects of a biomedical engineer?
The different aspects of a biomedical engineer (that I know of) include the
following. I have known several engineers who have worked in the biomedical
field. One friend was involved with prostheses (that is artificial joints
or limbs). He was working on the design of an artificial knee and testing
various designs on a rather sophisticated walking machine. I have another
friend who was involved with the design of instruments used to measure the
cardiac output of a human heart. He is now a doctor as he decided to go to
medical school after finishing a bachelors and masters degree in mechanical
engineering. I hope this gives you an idea of what types of things biomedi-
cal engineers might do.
