What is Biomedical Engineering?

Biomedical engineers use engineering to solve problems in medicine, such as creating replacement body parts, drug-delivery systems, creating new medical instruments, and equipment. Their work helps restore health and function, and improves the quality of life for people who are sick or injured. 

What will I do at WESA if I choose Biomedical Engineering?  

Students in this course will explore how mechanical, electrical, computer and chemical engineering are used to improve our health care system. Students will learn how to develop a system to improve the alignment of a limb during surgery through x-ray based imaging tracking technologies. In all, students will be able to take part in development process from initial conception to a trial in a simulated surgical environment.

When is this course offered?
