What does biomedical engineering mean?

Okay I'm graduated as a biomedical engineer in this year 2017. So, I think, I should answer this. Do you guys heard about: CT scan, MRI scan, Spygmomanometer, Pulse oxymeter, Defibrillators, PET, SPECT, etc??? These are the medical equipments. I'd say *BIOMEDICAL EQUIPMENTS*. You will study about these equipments, every part, every function, everything about it from the base. And also you will design one of this on your own in your projects. Can u imagine??, you will design a device that will save/helps thousands of lives. Well, this comes under healthcare companies where you will design new medical devices. There are two categories in medical equipments. One is diagnostics equipments which are used to identify patient's problems like scanning (x- ray scan). Another one is Therapeutic Equipments which are used to treat the patient's problems like defibrillators Have you seen in movies like a person met with accident will given shock waves by the doctors. That's it. That's the defibrillator device. About biomedical engineers work. There is a place for biomedical engineers in every hospitals. Whenever an equipment malfunctions, we will fix the problems. This is not an easy job. If we make one small mistake, it will lead to patient's death or injury. This job known as *Service Engineer* in BME- Biomedical engineering. Have you heard about healthcare companies??? well, these companies (Siemens, GE, Perfint Healthcare, etc) are having most biomedical engineers. For placements, these companies will recruits you. In here you have three jobs, 1) Sales Executive/Engineer- you will explain your company's new device to the hospitals (customers) and sell them. 2) Service Engineer- your customers will call for you to service the device . And you will go there and fix them. 3) Research and development- In here you will think of new ideas, design them and test them. You may search for *new biomedical technologies* in online. Wow yes, guys yes. Awesome, isn't it. If you are a person with interested in creating new devices that helps make people live better, then you have come to the right place. If you are interested in 3rd job, you should work hard when you study to get into best RnD solutions company or you can startup your own company. The choice is yours. If you are planning to take biomedical engineering, my congratulations and best wishes for your bright future. Hope my answer was helpful
