Biomedical Engineering focuses on problems in modern healthcare. It originates from a study track of mechanical engineering, which focused on the human body. It has developed into a broad field of study, combining engineering and knowledge of the human body to seek for innovative solutions in 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 & Modelling. 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 a specialist in his field.
