The overall aim of the Biomedical Engineering degree of Chalmers University of Technology is to provide an internationally competitive education and to prepare you for a professional career, by providing in-depth knowledge in biomedical engineering. The programme prepares you for using engineering skills to improve health care delivery and medical practice. Even if the focus is on biomedical engineering, you will also acquire a good platform for working in related engineering disciplines.
The future of health care will simply require technical expertise. Examples of research areas and applications where biomedical engineering is needed are for example stroke detection and brain monitoring in neurointensive care using microwave technology. Another example is microwave tomography for 3D breast tumour detection and visualization and microwave hypothermia for treating head and neck cancer. Furthermore, clothing incorporated textile-based sensors are used to record electrical activity from the heart, brain, or muscles, for monitoring in homecare and other distance settings. An area also in need of biomedical engineers is Health Informatics, where health care practice is supported by electronic processes and communication.
Biomedical engineers can be employed by manufacturers of medical equipment, health care providers, biomedical engineering divisions at hospitals, research departments and laboratories, consultant companies, and other industrial sectors, for consumer products where biomedical aspects are of importance. Examples of possible employers are: Dentsply, Elekta, Getinge, Mölnlycke Health Care, Surgical Science, Nobel Biocare, Integrum, St. Jude Medical, Cochlear, Ortivus, Oticon Medical, Micropos, Monivent, Medfield, Qbtech, Volvo, Autoliv, Osstell, Oticon, Ray Search, and RTI Group.
