CAREER & FUTURE PROSPECTS OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

Biomedical Engineering provides you with greater career opportunities. Biomedical engineering is said to be the most innovative subject and biomedical engineers are said to be the future director of modern world. Biomedical engineering is developing day by day and getting mass recognition now a day. Biomedical engineers are now designing different type of artificial limbs and prosthesis, discovering many modern medical procedures, developing new methods of preventing disease.  Moreover, biomedical   engineers work in offices, laboratories, workshops, manufacturing artificial limbs, clinics and hospitals. They also required to meet research deadlines, work with patients and medical equipment that is defected need to be prepared.

Message from Chairman

It is my great pleasure to invite you to explore the Jessore University of Science and Technology (JUST) online through our website. Contribution of science and technology for developing a nation is well known to all. To meet up the diversified demand of people, information and communication technology and biological sciences are playing the key role. University is the most suitable place for education and research. Universities are playing a vital role in building efficient manpower for the development of the country as well as for the global need. With a view to imparting science and technology oriented education in Bangladesh, the Jessore University of Science & Technology was established in 2007 by the Shadhinota Shorok (Independence Road) in Jessore district.

Department's View

Biomedical engineering was established in 2016. One Degree Offered: B. Sc. Engg. The main objective of the Biomedical Engineering Department is to make application of the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering to biology and medicine. As a result, the department focuses on the advances that improve human health and health care at all levels.

Biomedical engineers differ from other engineering disciplines that have an influence on human health in that biomedical engineers use and apply an intimate knowledge of modern biological principles in their engineering design process. Aspects ofmechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science and engineering are all integrated with human biology in biomedical engineering to improve human health, whether it is an advanced prosthetic limb or a breakthrough in identifying proteins within cells.

There are many sub-disciplines within biomedical engineering, including the design and development of active and passive medical devices, orthopedic implants, medical imaging, biomedical signal processing, tissue and stem cell engineering, and clinical engineering, just to name a few.

Graduate Career Options

Biomedical engineers work in a wide variety of settings and disciplines. There are opportunities in industry for innovating, designing, and developing new technologies; in academia furthering research and pushing the frontiers of what is medically possible as well as testing, implementing, and developing new diagnostic tools and medical equipment; and in government for establishing safety standards for medical devices. Many biomedical engineers find employment in cutting-edge start-up companies or as entrepreneurs themselves.

Economically speaking, medical diagnostics triple in market value each year. Revolutionary advances in medical imaging and medical diagnostics are changing the way medicine is practiced. New medical devices, arising in the research laboratories of biomedical engineers around the world, have completely altered the manner by which disease and trauma is dealt with by physicians, extending the quality and length of human life.

Ultimately, the future of biomedical engineering is tied to both the issues and obstacles we discover and advances and achievements in fields like chemistry, materials science, and biology. Just as in most other fields, interdisciplinary means that innovation originates from many directions at the same time.

Future Direction Of Biomedical Engineering

‘’Biomedical engineering or bioengineering, is the application of engineering principles to the field of biology and health care. Bioengineers work with doctors, therapist and researchers to develop system, equipment and device in order to solve clinical problem.

It is said that where doctor ends, biomedical engineer starts from then. [1.1]

Biomedical engineer:

Biomedical engineers study, design, develop and evaluate biological and medical systems and product such as artificial organs, prostheses, medical instruments and information system.

 

Responsibility:

Biomedical engineers work closely with life scientists, chemist and medical professionals (physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians) on the engineering aspects of biological systems. Ensure the safety of equipment used for diagnosis, treatment and monitoring.

Duties and responsibilities vary from one position to another, but in general biomedical engineers:

-Design and develop medical devices such as artificial hearts and kidneys, pacemaker, Artificial hips, surgical lasers, automated patient monitors and blood chemistry sensors.

-Design and develop engineer therapies (for example: neural-integrative prostheses)

-Adapt computer hardware and software or software for medical science or health care applications (for example: develop expert system that assist in diagnosing disease, medical imaging systems, models of different aspects of human physiology or medical data management)

-Ensure the safety of equipment used for diagnosis, treatment and monitoring.

-supervise and train technologists and technicians. [1.2]

Different field of biomedical engineering:

*Bioinformatics-developing and using computer tools to collect and analyze data.

*Bioinstrumentation-applying electronic and measurement   techniques

*Biomaterials-developing nonviable materials that is intended to interact with biological systems

*Bio-Nano-engineering developing novel structures of nanometer dimensions for application to biology, drug delivery and molecular diagnostics

*Cell and tissue engineering- design, construction, modification, growth o and maintenance of living tissue

*Clinical engineering-applying the latest technology to health care system in hospital

*Genetic engineering-mapping, sequencing and analyzing genomes (DNA)

*medical imaging and image processing-provision of graphic display of anatomic detail and physiological function of the body

*biomedical signal processing and analysis- collection and analysis of data from patients

Future Directions of biomedical Engineering:

Biomedical engineering is said to be the most innovative subject and biomedical engineers are said to be the future director of modern world. Biomedical engineering is developing day by day and getting mass recognition now a day. Biomedical engineers are now designing different type of artificial limbs and prosthesis, discovering many modern medical procedures, developing new methods of preventing disease.  Moreover, biomedical   engineers work in offices, laboratories, workshops, manufacturing artificial limbs, clinics and hospitals.
