Hello, my name is Emilie and I am working on a project involving biomedical engineering. I was wondering if any biomedical engineer who is currently working as a biomedical engineer was willing to answer my questions. If you know anyone who is a bioengineer please contact them about my question, I am on a bit of a time crunch. (The questions are below).

How long have you been a biomedical engineer and what company are you working with?
What kind of projects have you been involved in and what was your role in it?
What do you do on a daily basis?
What is your favorite part about working as a biomedical engineer?
To date, what professional achievement are you most proud of?
What are the biggest challenges you face in this position?
Do you have any suggestions for a young scholar like me who wants to become a biomedical engineer?
What do you see as the most challenging aspect of this job?
What was the challenging part of becoming a biomedical engineer?

Hi Emilie! I am not a biomedical engineer, but I did take some newly offered intro biomedical courses before I graduated in Electrical Engineering as well as participated in a senior project that was to be used in bio-med applications.

 


Do you have any suggestions for a young scholar like me who wants to become a biomedical engineer?What kind of projects have you been involved in and what was your role in it?

Helped in research & development of a pulsed power generator to be used for high voltage nano-second applications on cells.


My advice with me taking the introductory bio-med engineering courses offered is to make sure your knowledge of biology is sound on the most fundamental levels. You will be exploring the application of engineering theory to biology as well as studying electrical engineering in coordination. I discovered that the topics were geared towards electric potential of cells (your cells conduct electron movement like micro-batteries) and a foundation of electrical engineering benefited me there.


Benedick recommends the following next steps:

  • Major in both Biology and Electrical Engineering
