Advances at the intersection of medical devices and tissue engineering are creating new kinds of companies that collectively are organized as Biomedical Device Companies. With the development of combination devices, sensors, photonics, and implantable systems, employers need technician-specialists who understand more than classical biological and chemical sciences and traditional engineering. The emerging technician-specialist will also need to understand fundamental principles of electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, nanotechnology, optics, photonics, tissue culture, and process-control/quality assurance. Biomedical devices also include artificial organs, which, according Global News Wire, is expected to grow to a $30 billion dollar market by 2025.
