Health is engineering

Engineering is all about solving problems, including challenges in health and medicine. You might be making it easier for people to recover from injuries, helping doctors to diagnose diseases earlier, making surgery more accurate, or creating technology that everyone can use to monitor their health and fitness. Engineering and healthcare work side-by-side to give everybody a healthier future.
