Biomedical engineering is one of the hottest career these days. The opening of insurance sector has indirectly helped the healthcare industry. Anticipating the high quality medical care, which will be made available to millions of Indians, there has been a steady demand for bio medical engineers in India. There has been an increasing use of the combination of medicine with cutting edge technology in the treatment of diseases. More and more doctors are utilizing the power of computer and other devices such as MRI scans,sonography devices etc. Therefore if you are good in biology as well as math and physics ,then biomedical engineering is just right for you. Biomedical engineers apply the concepts of biology as well as physics and chemistry to develop products and devices which are used in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The biomedical engineers work with other health care professionals including physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians. There are various areas of specialization within the field of biomedical engineering such as :-
Clinical engineering- involves developing and maintaining computer databases of medical instruments and equipment records in hospitals.
Tissue engineering- involves applying the principles of biology and engineering to develop tissue substitutes to restore, maintain or improve the functions of diseased od damaged human tissues.
Cellular and genetic engineering-involves looking at medical problems at the microscopic level and developing devices to deliver medicines to precise locations to promote healing and inhibit diseases.


Rehabilitation engineering- rehabilitation engineers enhance the capabilities and improve the quality of life for individuals with physical impairments. They are involved in the development of home, workplace and transport modifications like motorized wheelchairs that enhance seating,positioning and mobility for those with physical disabilities.
Biomechanics- involves applying mechanics to biological or medical problems. They study the flow of body fluids such as blood.
Bioinstrumentation-This is the application of electronics and measurement techniques to develop devices used in diagnoses and treatment of diseases.Biomedical engineers are involved in making newer and better instrument that can look through the body such as x rays, MRI etc.
Orthopedic engineering-involves using engineering for the understanding of the function of bones, joints and muscles and for the design of artificial joint replacement. Orthopedic bioengineers analyze the friction,lubrication and wear and tear of natural joints to develop artificial limbs just as good as the real thing.
