Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering develops and applies technology to model and solve problems in medical area. This is a strategic field for Brazil that require capable professionals to contribute to scientific and technological advances for the industry of medical and hospital supplies ( therapy and diagnosis equipment, implantable materials, artificial organs, orthosis and prosthesis), biomedical instrumentation, rehabilitation technology (tools for people with special needs) and clinical engineering (health technology management). The Biomedical engineer has an interdisciplinary approach and conceptual skills to develop, apply and integrate modern engineering techniques and tools to come up with creative solution for the health industry.
