EMERGING SCOPE IN MEDICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING

Medical Electronics engineers develop devices and procedures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices. Many do research, along with life scientists, chemists, and medical scientists, to develop and evaluate systems and products such as artificial organs, prostheses (artificial devices that replace missing body parts), instrumentation, medical information systems, and health management and care delivery systems. Medical Electronics engineers also design devices used in various medical procedures, imaging systems such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and devices for automating insulin injections or controlling body functions.
Medical Electronics engineers develop devices and set procedures that solve medical as well as health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Medical Electronics is an expertised training with advance knowledge in Medicine and Engineering, through cross-disciplinary tasks that will integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical science and even with clinical practices.

Medical Electronics Engineers will build devices and procedures that will help in solving medical and health-related problems by merging their knowledge of medicine and biology with engineering practices and principles. Most of them do research, along with life chemists, medical scientists, and scientists, to build and assess systems and products like prostheses, medical information systems, artificial organs, instrumentation, care delivery systems, and health management.
These engineers can also design devices that are used in different imaging systems, medical procedures like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and devices for controlling body functions and automated insulin injections.
