Biomedical engineers apply signal processing methods to the design of medical devices that monitor and diagnose conditions in the human body. Bio-signal processing involves the sophisticated analysis of data collected from patients or experimental subjects using medical instrumentation in an effort to interpret these signals. This provides physicians and researchers with vital information about the condition of their subjects. Applications of bio-signal processing include heart arrhythmia detection and anesthesia monitoring.

Learning outcomes

Biomedical Engineering - Electronic Medical Instrumentation at Milwaukee School of Engineering help people by solving medical equipment and healthcare related problems using math, science and engineering principles. They design medical devices and systems and manage the manufacture, sales and use of this equipment in environments ranging from homes to hospitals.

Biomedical Engineers are essential to the delivery of modern medical care that improves peoples’ health and helps them live longer, happier lives.

This broad approach to BE allows students to explore the varied options available to biomedical engineers and postpone selecting a specific career path until their senior year.

BE provides a wide range of career options and is among the fastest growing engineering areas. BEs are instrumental in improving the quality and reducing the cost of health care. Cardiac pacemakers, CT scanners and artificial hips are just a few of the specific products with which BEs deal. Although BE coursework generally focuses on medical device design, development, production, and use, biomedical engineers can apply their broad and deep engineering and life science knowledge to a wide range of related problems. For example, several program graduates now work in automotive safety and comfort related jobs. Others are physicians and lawyers. Some biomedical engineers start their own businesses developing new services or consulting with industry or research centers, while others work for the government developing and ensuring proper regulation of medical equipment.
