Biomedical Engineering


  • Biomedical engineers analyze and solve problems in biology and medicine in order to increase the quality and effectiveness of patient care. It develops design systems and products such as artificial internal organs, artificial instruments to replace body parts, and machines for diagnosing medical problems. 

    • What Does a Biomedical Engineer Do? What are the Duties and Responsibilities? 

    The work of the biomedical engineer covers many professional fields. Although his/her expertise is rooted in engineering and biology, he/she often designs computer software to operate complex tools such as three-dimensional x-ray machines; uses chemistry and biology knowledge to develop new drug therapies; It uses mathematics and statistics to create models to understand the signals transmitted by the brain or heart. Although biomedical engineers have a wide responsibility framework, the general job description can be grouped under the following headings; 

      • To educate clinicians and other staff about the correct use of the equipment, 
      • Working in cooperation with chemists and medical scientists to research the engineering aspects of biological systems of humans and animals, 
      • Conducting necessary research to solve clinical problems, 
      • Design electrical circuits, software running medical equipment or computer simulations to test new drugs, 
      • Designing artificial body parts such as hip and knee joints, 
      • Developing the necessary materials to make replacement body parts, 
      • Providing installation, adjustment, maintenance, repair or technical support for biomedical equipment, 
      • Evaluating the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of biomedical equipment 

    • What Education Is Required To Become A Biomedical Engineer? 

    In order to become a biomedical engineer, it is required to graduate from the 'Biomedical Engineering' department of universities with a bachelor's degree. 

    • Requirements for a Biomedical Engineer 

    The qualifications that employers look for in biomedical engineers who can work in business fields such as hospitals, universities, research institutions, medical equipment manufacturers are as follows; 

      • Having creativity and technical ability to transform designs into products, 
      • To analyze the needs of patients and customers in order to design appropriate solutions,
