RAVI’s Answer

Bio Engineers are needed in many places: Agriculture companies (I am sure many Agro-Seed/Fertilizer companies need equipment to test, engineer, prove and produce) need bioengineers, communication and electronics companies need bio engineers to collect/sample/analyze bio signals to lead them to framework/equipment/services to treat all kinds of health issues, heart issues, neurological issues etc. I have a nephew who got his BioElectronics degree from Georgia Tech recently and he is doing PhD at Rice currently trying to figure out a treatment for Autism and other neurological issues using equipment and computer software! Companies that make exoskeletons, Applied Virtual Augmentation for remote surgical procedures, patient investigations etc also would need them. All medical equipment makers CatScans/MRI/EKG/ECG/s etc utilize BioEngg.

Best wishes.

RAVI recommends the following next steps:

Check out Online for information, reach out to many medical equipment makers,
Check major college web sites to see the list of companies they are doign research with or partnering with

Thanks! The specific examples are def something I wanna consider. Ryan C.

In my career I worked for companies in San Antonio where I went to university. One of my professors had a startup company where I got my first job. A later position was for a larger company that made wound care devices. There are three things that can help you get established in a good career. Develop your technical skills on the job, make sure that you’re learning new skills with every position. Network by getting to know others in your areas of interest, going to conferences, seminars, and training. Take some risks. Work for a startup or small company. Then work for a large established company. By then you will know many peers who can help you advance your career. Always keep your reputation in mind.

Okay, the communication/reputation part is key, thank you for that! Ryan C.

In any profession it always starts with who you know. Colleges have career centers to help students in this area. Also going to professors and asking for recommendations of places to look always helps too.
