Biomedical Systems Engineering Training, Workshop Style

Biomedical systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field that merges biological research with various fields of materials engineering, imaging and sensing, and even nanotechnology.

Related fields of study include chemical engineering (like forming new medicines), mechanical engineering (think of prosthetic limbs and artificial organs) and computer science (like the growing field of computational biology).

Biological knowledge combined with engineering principles to address medical needs has greatly contributed to the development of both life-changing and life-saving concepts and products such as artificial organs, pacemakers, artificial hips, surgical robots, advanced prosthetics, kidney dialysis, MRIs, EKGs, ECGs, pharmaceutical drugs and therapeutic biologicals.

There are now even more futuristic technologies available such as stem cell engineering and the 3-D printing of biological organs.

In recent years biomedical sensors based in microwave technology have gained more attention. Different sensors can be manufactured for specific uses in both diagnosing and monitoring disease conditions, for example microwave sensors can be used as a complementary technique to X-ray to monitor lower extremity trauma. 

The sensor monitors the dielectric properties and can thus notice change in tissue (bone, muscle, fat, etc.) under the skin so when measuring at different times during the healing process the response from the sensor will change as the trauma heals.

Not surprisingly, the work of these biomedical systems engineers spans many professional fields. Although their expertise is based in engineering and biology, they often design computer software to run complicated instruments, such as three-dimensional X-ray machines.

The responsibilities of a biomedical systems engineer are considerable and consist of everything from designing systems and products to installing, adjusting, maintaining, repairing or providing technical support for biomedical equipment.

A biomedical systems engineer may also evaluate the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of biomedical equipment as well as train clinicians and other personal on the correct use of equipment.

There are also a lot of cooperative efforts such as working with life scientists, chemists and medical scientists especially in connection with researching the engineering aspects within the biological systems of humans and animals.

The practice of biomedical engineering has a long history. One of the earliest examples is a wood and leather prosthetic toe found on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy.

Before that, even simple crutches and walking sticks were a form of engineered assistive devices, and the first person to fashion a splint for a broken bone could be considered to have been an early biomedical engineer.

Biomedical Systems Engineering Training Workshop by Tonex

Biomedical Systems Engineering Training Workshop uniquely covers many aspects of biomedical engineering using interdisciplinary training bootcamp. Biomedical Systems Engineering Training build a strong foundation in both engineering and the life sciences and equips our attendees to tackle complex bioengineering problems and design challenges.

A system thinking and a systems approach will integrate engineering, analysis and design, reliability, safety, chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering to provide molecule-to-organ system understanding. By covering conceptual and technological advances in the biomedical sciences, you will improve the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and to other health-related issues.

By taking Biomedical Systems Engineering Training course, participants will be able to structure and lead a conceptual design effort and apply the most essential systems engineering tools to realistic biomedical problems. Designed with substantial biomedical industry input, the program addresses modern systems engineering principles applied to biomedical systems.

Who Should Attend?

Biomedical Systems Engineering Training Workshop is designed for engineers, programmers, technicians, analysts, testers, program and project managers, and business professionals, who want to gain practical knowledge for leading and completing complex biomedical projects.

How You Will Benefit

Participants will learn about systems definition and requirements engineering, systems analysis and the design, implementation, operation, and technical management of systems projects. Explore a range of systems engineering principles and development methodologies through practical application to biomedical case study scenarios.

This four-day workshop includes two parts:

Biomedical Systems Engineering: participants will learn about systems engineering, moving from general concepts to the specifics of how systems engineering is being used for actual biomedical projects.

Capstone Project and Process Improvement Discussion – The workshop participants apply what they have learned about systems engineering to their own biomedical project delivery process. The existing project delivery process and experiences from recent projects are discussed. Facilitators and participants will work together to develop a set of actions or process improvement recommendations through the capstone project.
