Consider the bridge — one of the oldest and most common artifacts of fine engineering. Now imagine a bridge that connects two fields of study: engineering and medicine. And this bridge is expanding. Biomedical engineering is expected to grow by 62% by 2020.

davinciLeonardo da Vinci knew about biomechanical engineering with his drawing of the ideal proportions of the human figure.

Like da Vinci, biomedical engineers see the human body as a machine, one that can be designed, analyzed, and repaired with engineering.

Much of the recent advances in medicine have come through devices engineered to diagnose, treat, or replace physiological function – a trend that’s sure to continue.
