This book is on a wiki, and may therefore be edited by anybody. Feel free to help out and contribute to this book in any way, but please try to maintain the scope of this book, although the scope is still under discussion right now.

This book will discuss the topic of Biomedical Engineering, which is an interdisciplinary engineering topic. The main target audience is biomedical engineering students or people interested in following this line of study.This book is structured so that is may serve as the primary text for a two semester or tree quarter course in biomedical engineering. This book should serve students by helping them build familiarity with a wide variety of different disciplines in the field as well as the tools and techniques in use. In this way, it should help them to give them a firm grounding in the field so they can better choose the direction to develop their career.

This book will require some prior knowledge of elementary calculus & statistics. In addition, prior knowledge of the natural sciences with a strong life science focus is very beneficial. Also, prior knowledge of other engineering disciplines may shed more light on certain subjects. Wikibooks with prerequisite information required for this book will be listed near the beginning of each chapter.
