Bioengineering or biomedical engineering, combines various disciplines (electronic, automated, computer and mechanical engineering; chemistry; biology; economics; medicine; physiology…) but the discipline has gradually evolved to acquire its own scientific and cultural autonomy and today is a prospering sector in its own right.
The biomedical appliance market has been growing steadily in recent decades and it set to continue its expansion, while the growth of biomedical appliances based on ICT technology has been even more impressive.
The skills required of a bioengineer are varied: from the ability to provide a methodological contribution in basic research or clinical practice, to technical knowledge of the development and use of innovative technologies, to the management applications in various health fields.
