There are a variety of majors that can help you get where you want to go. In my opinion the the biomedical engineering major is the most direct path. However, if you are not interested in the courses required for Biomedical then you should consider electro-mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or mechanical engineering. My company has a division that develops thermometers and blood pressure monitors and the engineers are either biomedical or mechanical, but they collaborate with electrical engineers, software engineers and quality engineers.
Hope this helps. Happy Holidays
Nick recommends the following next steps:
- Research job responsibilities for Biomedical Engineering, Electro-Mechanical, and Mechanical engineering.
- Research courses required for each major
- Speak to your guidance counselor about what you found in your research and what you are interested in
