Great question! I was wondering the same thing when I was applying for jobs. There are so many different directions that you can go with a biomedical engineering degree. I personally volunteered in a hospital, worked as a medical device engineer, and I am now working as a consultant. While some of my classmates went into traditional engineering positions that involved medical devices, organ transplants, cell research and other jobs along these lines, others went into more business focused positions such as consulting, investment banking, and private equity. You might also consider research or continued education.
This professional recommends the following next steps:
- Look at job postings online
- Ask students who graduated with a biomedical engineering degree
