What is Biomedical Engineering (Electronics)?

Biomedical electronic engineers consider innovative digital health solutions to address the growing pressure on healthcare providers created by an ageing population and an increase in chronic disease. By combining electronics and biomedicine, new healthcare technologies can be created such as home monitoring and intelligent diagnostics and treatment.
