IEEE: Engineering in Biology and Medicine

IEEE in Biology and Medicine Engineering - RF CafeMiracle inventions in medicine and biology often require the assistance of electrical engineers to provide an interface for measurement and/or control. Ingestible and implantable wireless probes and monitors, wearable brain wave caps, robotic limb replacement and assistance devices, imaging equipment, and nanotechnology are a few of the applications requiring an EE partnership. Many doctors were first engineers before getting a medical degree, and as such do their own circuit and/or mechanical and/or software design. The IEEE is executing (maybe the wrong verb to use when addressing medical topics) an awareness effort to hopefully attract engineers into the field. Some projects have you working directly with patients and volunteer test subjects, so if you are one of those fabled non-introverted engineers, this might be the career course for you.
