Foreign Students Urged To Help In Nation Building
Chief Executive Officer of Beautiful Creations Company Limited, Samuel Ansong, has entreated university students of foreign nationalities to support their various countries with knowledge acquired in Ghana.
He said this during the second collaborative graduation of about forty biomedical engineering students from All Nations University College in Accra.
He advised services of biomedical engineers are very much sorted after in Europe and many parts of Africa as they have become increasingly important to hospitals and clinics hence urging students, most of whom besides Ghana were from Togo, Nigeria, Congo and Cote D’voire.
As a training institution which also major in importation and wholesale of hospital consumables, hospital equipments and machines as well as manufacturers of industrial safety wears, Beautiful Creations Company Limited has shared in the interest of training science students in specializing in biomedical engineering.
Head of Department for Biomedical Engineering at All Nations University College, Archibald Danquah-Amoah in his interaction with the media indicated the relationship between the university and Beautiful Creations Company Limited was a cordial one as both units has effectively groomed huge number of Biomedical Engineering students. He acknowledged that apart from the University’s specific practical curriculum, Beautiful Creations Company Limited also trained in Precision Marketing, Sales Promotion, Procurement Processes and Product specification amidst motivating the students on how to become better among their work group in their chosen field.
Science education is distinctive with pedagogical emphasis on values such as experimentations which largely relies on physical facilities like the laboratory, in order to train students in the skills of observation, measurement and problem solving.
Thousands of physicians and clinicians emerge annually from our various universities and medical institutions, but it is public knowledge that their quality and mastery leaves doubts in the minds of many prominent and elite Ghanaians as they travel to Europe to seek medical support for their health issues. Due to this familiar dilemma confronting the medical service in Ghana most science students after graduation travel to Europe where vast range of laboratory and technical expertise are available and majored in. Bottom-line is most medical training institutions in the country are not sufficiently equipped with training tools.
In Biomedical Engineers however, the act of maturing and perfecting ones medical aptitude is gaining high level experience using specific laboratory equipments and making observations and interpretations from theoretical aspect of science into solving real life medical problems.
Duties of Biomedical Engineers?
Biomedical engineers combine biology, medicine, and engineering and use advanced knowledge of engineering and science to solve medical and health-related problems. Biomedical engineers design massive MRI machines along with the microscopic machines used in surgery. They research and develop prostheses, evaluate the use of artificial organs, and improve instrumentation used in hospitals and clinics.
An increasing demand for cost-effective medical products should boost the demand for biomedical engineers, particularly those working in pharmaceutical manufacturing and research. The best job prospects are expected for biomedical engineers with master’s degrees in the field.
A Day in the Life of a Biomedical Engineer
Working in teams, either with other engineers or with research or manufacturing professionals, biomedical engineers create the specialized products that save lives and make patients safer and more comfortable. Many biomedical engineers are in research, assisting life scientists, chemists, and other scientists to develop and evaluate medical systems and products.
A sophisticated level of scientific and technical knowledge is required for biomedical engineers, who bridge the gap between medicine and engineering. Attention to detail is another important skill, along with communication and team ability.
Biomedical Engineer Training and Education
A bachelor’s degree is the first step for engineers because most careers in the field require the degree as an entry level requirement. Biomedical engineers often combine formal training in mechanical and electronics engineering with focused biomedical training to operate confidently in the field. Unlike many engineering fields, many entry-level biomedical engineers hold a master’s degree.
Some schools provide undergraduate degrees in biomedical engineering and typical coursework includes instruction in neuron engineering fundamentals; bio-fluid mechanics; engineering electrophysiology; diagnostic imaging physics; and drug design, development, and delivery. In addition to core courses, students can take electives related to their ultimate career goals.
