Hello, I am a recent Biomedical Engineering Graduate from Baylor University. I was the Vice President of the Biomedical Engineering Society at Baylor and I can tell you it will be a lot of work to become one of the leading experts in this field. First, you will want to choose the school that fits you and what you are looking for. While in school, I will say that you should keep great connections with your professors. They will be some of your greatest allies while trying to navigate this field. if you have any more questions feel free to ask me!
Virginia recommends the following next steps:
- If you have been accepted into the school that you have chosen, work on relations with professors and other students in your field.
- Plan your college classes and according to what you wish to do and keep track of your degree audit, so you do not have to any surprises in your last years.
- Think about whether or not you wish to get a Masters. If you chose to go into Industry, you may not need one for certain jobs. But if you plan to go into research, a masters will be required.
- Do not be discourage, if things to not go as to expected. you are in a hard field and may things will change as you go.
