Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the medical field. It combines the mechanical and mathematical expertise of engineering with the medical expertise of physicians to help improve patient health care and the quality of life of healthy individuals. As a relatively new discipline, much of the work in biomedical engineering consists of research and development, covering an array of fields: bioinformatics, medical imaging, image processing, physiological signal processing, biomechanics, biomaterials and bioengineering, systems analysis, 3-D modeling, etc. Examples of concrete applications of biomedical engineering are the development and manufacture of biocompatible prostheses, medical devices, diagnostic devices and imaging equipment such as MRIs and EEGs, and pharmaceutical drugs.
This topic page is for organizing the development of Biomedical engineering content on Wikiversity.
If you are knowledgeable in any area Biomedical engineering, feel free to improve upon what you see, we would greatly appreciate your contributions.
Learning projects and resources
Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Please cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
Here is a list of Disciplines in Biomedical Engineering
Courses Listed Below are currently available. You are welcome to Use; Edit or proof read courses in this department.
The course numbers are intended to describe loosely the level of challenge or experience. For example a level 200-299 would be a 2nd term/year students course and would indicate there may be 1 or more 100-199 level courses that you are expected to know already. If there is a course you would like to see or create, check out requested and new courses
Cant see the course you are looking for? Then it probably is not written yet. All courses that are yet to be written are kept here.
Please have a look at our current list of requested courses.
If you still don't find the course you want, then you can request it by listing it on the page. Better yet you can start the course your self!
Remember, Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. We learn by doing.
Also, select a descriptive name for each learning project. Learning projects can be listed in alphanumeric order by code. Code numbers are optional, however.
