biomedical engineering

He is a professional with multidisciplinary training and scientific-technical skills to analyze and solve problems related to medicine and biology; trained to design, design, use and maintain devices, equipment and biomedical systems in health centers, hospitals, medical technology industry and research centers.

Why engineer in Biomedical?

To make viable the development and implantation of sanitary technology, and to optimize the daily management of medical equipment and systems, a new professional with a solid formation in engineering methods, a basic knowledge of biology and medicine, a specific engineering training is required. biomedical and skills to work in a multidisciplinary environment. In our country, lacking professionals in this engineering, the demand for the corresponding services and professionals are covered by other Engineers. This reality obliges many companies (especially medical centers) to make a significant investment in training, typically of a technical nature, limiting the necessary skills for the optimal use of healthcare technology and support services for medical professionals.

Where can you start?

The training in the two disciplines, engineering and medicine, enables you to coordinate interdisciplinary teams formed by both types of professionals (engineers and doctors). The Biomedical Engineers work in companies, hospitals, health centers, universities, research centers and in public administration (local, regional, national and international), related to the regulation of the use of health technology, among other places.
