In addition to highlighting how engineering is benefiting medicine and biology, it will also shine a light on how the engineers are transforming the industry. These efforts span the entire spectrum of Engineering Science; indeed systems engineering is of increasing importance and frequency.
Illustrations will be drawn from mathematical modeling, novel devices, image and signal processing, diagnosis and therapy (including surgery and radiation therapy,) as well as nanotechnology and novel materials through to smart houses and beyond.
