About Biomedical Engineering
Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field of study that integrates knowledge of engineering principles with the biomedical sciences. Biomedical engineers work in the design, production, development, operation, and maintenance of medical devices and systems used for diagnostics and therapeutics such as systems for imaging and medical robotics. Consequently, they work closely with professionals from other engineering disciplines and basic sciences as well as medical staff like MDs, nurses and technicians.
Those who wish to become a biomedical engineer should possess the following set of skills: interest in science and medicine, ability to see the relationships between shapes, strong design skills, detail-oriented, observant, and responsible. To that end, the Biomedical Engineering curriculum of İzmir University of Economics has been designed to provide a solid foundation in mathematics, life and physical sciences, and engineering. The first two years of our instructional program is designed to provide the foundation over basic sciences (mathematics, physics and chemistry), computer programming, and fundamentals of biomedical engineering. While as of third year the program aims for delivering knowledge of the biomedical engineering domain, its applications, and the advances.
Serving as a bridge between engineering, life, and science, biomedical engineering is a dynamic and rapidly emerging field that offers a wide range of employment opportunities. Graduates may not only work as engineers or managers in industry, hospitals, academic research and teaching institutes, national and international laboratories, or government regulatory agencies, but also pursue academic career to become academicians and/or researchers.
