"Engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to the benefit of man." —Ralph J. Smith (engineering professor, Stanford University)
As time goes by, I realize it has been a year since I have attended SJSU as a biomedical engineering student. However, what exactly is biomedical engineering? According to the definition, Biomedical Engineering is the “application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes.” In other words, biomedical engineering is the study that connects the gap between biology, medicine and engineering, which means it combines the problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences knowledge to

Biochemical study usually deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules and associated with human life, such as proteins, nucleic acids and so on. In addition, one of the most important classifications of biochemical is the Cellular, Tissue and Genetic Engineering. Cellular, Tissue and Genetic Engineering. Genetic and Tissue Engineering is the study of Biotechnology to recombinant DNA and use gene splicing technology for genetic modification and manipulation (GM) so that it can apply to the direct manipulation of an organism's genes. One of the biggest contributions for this area of study is they create the artificial organs used for patients who need organ transplantation. The cellular, tissue and genetic engineering are involved recent attempts to attack biomedical problems at the microscopic level in the U.S. These areas utilize the anatomy, biochemistry and mechanics of cellular and sub-cellular structures in order to understand disease processes and to be prepare to intervene and promote healing the diseases.
Moreover, the second specialty area within biomedical engineering is Bioelectrical. Bioelectrical is known as Bio-electromagnetics; it’s the study based on biomedical, electrical engineering and also computer science. Areas of study include electrical
