What is the most impactful project a bio-medical engineer can work on in their career?
I am still deciding on what career I would like to pursue. I want to do something that will leave an impact for others to benefit from, therefore I want more information if bio-medical engineering is for me. #engineer #biomedical #science #medical #hospital-and-health-care
Marshall, It would depend on what branch of BioMed you want to go into. Some go into research, where you
would be developing new types of equipment or software,, or new uses for existing equipment. Another branch
is the repair and maintenance BioMed department, in a hospital or private company. In this area you would be
assuring the safety of all the equipment used on patients in the hospitals, doctor's offices and clinics that you
would serve. Either way you would be helping people every day, to recover from illness or injury and live better lives. Good luck whichever you choose.
This professional recommends the following next steps:
- Talk you your school guidance councilor, or speak with an admissions officer of an engineering school that has the program you are interested in. Another resource would be a local Biomedical Society.
