Future Scope : Biomedical Engineering blends traditional engineering techniques with biological sciences and medicine to improve the quality of human health and life. It focuses both on understanding complex living systems via experimental and analytical techniques and on development of devices, methods and algorithms that advance medical and biological knowledge while improving the effectiveness and delivery of clinical medicine.

Biomedical engineering has been a critical component of the technological advances in medicine and health care delivery that has dramatically transformed the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease in the last few decades. Whether in the area of biomedical imaging, bio-signal processing, medical instrumentation, biomechanics, biomaterials and implants, drug delivery, or cell and tissue engineering, these advances are continuing to accelerate.
