Where would modern medicine be without the contributions of biomedical engineering? Imagine hospitals operating without X-rays, ultrasound, EKGs, and the thousands of high-tech procedures and devices that diagnose conditions, sustain health, and fight disease. As a biomedical engineer, you’ll make a real difference in the lives of others. You might develop artificial lenses that restore sight to the blind, radiation treatments that fight cancer, or incubators that keep premature babies alive. And outside the world of medicine, you could contribute to the health of our planet by developing better technology in the fields of agriculture and environmental science.
