|Description||The Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference (ABEC) is the major conference for the College of Biomedical Engineers within Engineers Australia (EA). EA is the national forum for the advancement of engineering and the professional development of our members. With more than 85,000 members embracing all disciplines of the engineering team, EA is the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers in Australia.
The College of Biomedical Engineers is for members of EA who work closely with medical practitioners, health-industry professional, and vehicle and safety equipment manufacturers to enhance human life.
Biomedical Engineering is an integral part of modern health care. Biomedical Engineering teams bring their skills to a broad range of fields ranging from Clinical Engineers managing all aspects of the health technology lifecycle; Rehabilitation Engineers taking lead roles as front line clinicians in assessment, design and manufacture of assistive technology for people with disabilities; engineers in industry developing and manufacturing medical devices; engineers leading or supporting standards development, review and implementation across the health care sector; through to researchers working closely with other clinicians or industry partners to develop new technologies and procedures.
Engineers Australia’s, College of Biomedical Engineers recognises the diverse nature of the work of Biomedical Engineers and is looking to celebrate this through ABEC 2016. ABEC 2016 will bring together all branches of Biomedical Engineering into one conference to focus on the role engineering has to play in improving health care outcomes.
