Bioelectronics is the application of electrical engineering principles to biology, medicine, behavior, or health. Bioelectronics advances our fundamental concepts, creates knowledge for molecular to organ systems levels, and develops innovative devices or processes for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease in order to rehabilitate patients and improve health.
Bioelectronic engineers attempt to combine their knowledge of biological and electrical systems to produce new ways to treat patients. Bioengineers help create and evaluate new technology and improve the understanding of biological systems, which makes them invaluable to the medical community.
Real-world devices and systems are the keystone of bioelectronic research and development. Bioelectronic products are developed using several methods, ideas, and techniques, including bioelectromagnetics, instrumentation, neural networks, robotics, and sensor technologies.
Onsite facilities for prototyping and testing instrumentation systems, fabricating and measuring the performance of implantable devices, and building robotic prostheses are readily available. New sensors and sensor arrays are microfabricated in a 2,000 sq ft cleanroom.
