Due to elevation in medical technologies, there is great demand for Biomedical Engineers in India and abroad. Biomedical Engineers are responsible for developing artificial limbs, prosthetics, imagining machines like MRIs, ECGs; thus enhancing healthcare quality. Biomedical engineering (BME) is applying engineering principles and the concept of design to medicine to revolutionize health care treatment.

A biomedical engineer can choose from a variety of career options specifically designed as per the interest of the engineer. :
Tissue Engineering :One of the goals of tissue engineering is to create artificial organs (via biological material) for patients that need organ transplants.
Genetic Engineering :Genetic engineers add new traits to organisms by manually adding new DNA to the organism. Desired traits or quality can be acquired in organisms or plants through genetic engineering.
Neural Engineering :Neural Engineers use engineering techniques to understand, repair, replace, or enhance neural systems.
Medical Devices :Biomedical engineers are responsible for making following medical devices.
Medical Imaging:For the diagnosis and treatment of disease biomedical engineers prepare devices that create visual representation of the interior body like MRI, Ultrasound and endoscopy.
Medical Implants :Biomedical engineers develop implants kind of medical device made to replace and act as a missing biological structure.
Bionics :Bionics does artificial body part replacement.
Pharmaceutical Engineering :Pharmaceutical Engineers conceive, develop and test new drugs; improve exciting drugs.
Clinical Engineering :Clinical engineers design, develop and maintain the equipment used for diagnosing illness and treating patients.
