Biomedical engineering is the unique area that is bridging the gap between medicine and engineering, a cross-cutting field where medicine, engineering and biology are combined and aimed at developing human health through modern technological means.

American universities have an excellent history in this field and they have large numbers of Indian students who study this field.

If you are interested in the field of compensatory medicine in the joints and bones, this area is suitable for you. Some programs also offer more disciplines such as tissue engineering and neuroengineering.

Some colleges offer a masters degree in science, while some offer a masters degree in biomedical engineering, which requires a master's degree in engineering or pure science. You can also choose to complete the program in two years without presenting a paper and to adhere to the courses only, and the opportunity to get the Bachelor and doctoral degrees is available to foreign students. A limited number of universities have access to a bachelor's degree in science and Masters in Science and bio-medicine in five years.

Master degree programs teach you the basic principles of research engineering and specialized programs such as systems physiology, sensors and bio-imaging. Programs also include cellular metabolism engineering and cell interactions. It is an interdisciplinary study involving engineering, medicine and science.

Upon graduation you will be eligible for academic work, hospital work, government research labs, health imaging centers, and other fields of health work, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.

The main responsibilities of the graduates of this field are to research and supervise the manufacture of pharmaceuticals or other health products and to work with manufacturing officials, scientists and physicians. The increasing demand for medical equipment will also find you a variety of job opportunities in this area.
