Biomedical Engineering focusses on problems in modern healthcare. Diagnostics, disease treatment and prevention ask for a constant renewal of technology in healthcare. Biomedical Engineering is the answer to this, because students are educated to use interdisciplinary knowledge applied to human healthcare problems. Biomedical problems are often complicated and require knowledge of fields like mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, applied physics, mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering. All these fields come into play in the three research groups; Biomechanics & Tissue Engineering, Molecular Bioengineering & Molecular Imaging and Biomedical Imaging & Modeling. The Biomedical engineer uses available data from all different sources and translates it into solutions which can be used by a doctor. The broad field of knowledge of a Biomedical engineer makes him useful both in and out of the medical world, where he can function as a bridge between different disciplines or as specialist in his specialization.
