Biomedical Engineer

ITESM - Campus Ciudad de Mexico

This description corresponds to the program taught here in Mexico City Campus.

He is a professional with a strong background in natural sciences, engineering and life sciences. It specializes in activities related to the use, generation and conservation of medical technology to identify and resolve problems in the area of ​​health, with a high sense of ethics and professional areas.

Biomedical engineering is a specialty of the engineer devoted to the study, analysis and solution of problems in biology and medicine providing increasingly complex care health technology tools. There is a growing demand for biomedical engineers in the world, due to increased demand and technological developments effectively using electronic, computer and tissue engineering for the benefit of health technologies.

The Biomedical Engineering from Tecnologico de Monterrey prepares students with an intimate knowledge of the needs of medicine and health. This knowledge enables effective communication with the main users of technological development, resulting in designs and effective solutions in contrast to developments trained in other disciplines or institutions where biomedical engineering belongs to a school of health engineers. Furthermore, the race of Biomedical Engineering ITESM prepares students in project management and engineering, in order that its graduates to effectively manage complex and interdisciplinary projects.

Curricular lines of Biomedical Engineering 2011 program are:

Clinical Engineering. It includes the development of skills for graduates to serve as a clinical engineer in healthcare, performing management functions, equipment selection and generating quality processes.

Bioinstrumentation. It deals with the development of skills for the design, maintenance and operation of biomedical devices with electronic components.

Biomechanical Design. Prepares students for graduate that you can work on the design of biomedical devices companies engaged in product innovation in the area of ​​health or as an entrepreneur in this area.

Physiological Engineering. It deals with the development of skills to understand and model physiological systems as a basis to use and develop technological tools for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. The graduates can work in companies engaged in the design and marketing of highly sophisticated biomedical devices and be prepared to conduct research and graduate studies in advanced technologies.

The new curriculum online in Physiological Engineering Career grant a competitive advantage based on its strong links with the medical field, it can hardly be replicated by other universities.

Research in biomedical sciences and biomedical devices performing at the Tecnológico de Monterrey, supports the formation of Biomedical Engineering in these subjects and enables you to carry out practices and learning activities in our own hospital.

Who is a Biomedical Engineer?

A Biomedical Engineer is a professional who combines knowledge and engineering skills and health. Work with physicians, nurses, dentists, dietitians, technicians and other professionals in the area of ​​health, solving related problems bioinstrumentation, biomechanics, biomaterials, medical imaging management, physiological systems, clinical engineering, rehabilitation and tissue engineering among other areas .

What are the responsibilities of a Biomedical Engineer?

A Biomedical Engineer will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems in the area of ​​health, using the best practices and existing technology.
  • Design systems, components or processes in the area of ​​health, considering the safety, economic and sustainability.
  • Undertake, manage and innovate business, projects and products in the health area.
  • Understand the importance of professional, ethical, civic and environmental commitment.
  • Design and conduct experimental procedures for obtaining information relevant to biomedical engineering.
  • Apply math, biology, physiology and other sciences, in different areas of biomedical engineering.
  • Understand the social, economic, environmental and global impact of engineering solutions.

Where you can work a Biomedical Engineer?

A Biomedical Engineer will perform in the following areas:

  • Design of medical devices: - Design and development of pacemakers, defibrillators, artificial kidneys, blood oxygenators, arms, legs, artificial blood vessels, etc.
  • Design and development of biomaterials. Identification of the mechanical, electrical and biocompatibility properties of implantable materials.
  • Clinical Research: - Research and development of reactors for tissue engineering.
  • Research and development of new diagnostic techniques or molecular imaging.
  • Planning Health Systems: - Design of clinical laboratories using advanced technology, for example, computerized analyzer for blood samples, ambulance for use in rural areas, catheterization labs, etc.
  • Building design, system design based on X-ray images (Tomography) isotopes (positron emission) ultrasound, magnetic fields (NMR) - Participation in planning committees of hospitals and health systems - Consulting / sales specialist: - Sale and distribution of medical equipment.

a Biomedical EngineerWith less than five years of work experience, is expected to exert functions mentioned aerial assistance. After five years and graduate is expected to be a leader of research projects, development and / or planning.
