Biomedical Engineering

Prof. Dr. İzzet TOR


Main aim of biomedical engineering is the ability to translate basic research advances into useful devices or therapies that impact patient care. Within this sphere, main work areas are to design and develop medical equipment and systems like artificial organs, pace makers, cardiac valves, catheters, bone prosthesis, MR, Rontgen, angiotech and to give technical service and consultancy.

Biomedical engineering use and apply an intimate knowledge of modern biological principles in their engineering design process. A biomedical engineer needs to know about some aspects of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science and are all integrated with human biology. It is an outstanding field all over the world.
