What's the difference between bio-engineering and bio-medical engineering?

I would like to venture into the field of bio-medical engineering and biotechnology but not all colleges offer these programs but some offer a bio-engineering course or degree instead. I was wondering what the main differences were and if I could still get the same jobs with that degree. biology biomedical-engineering biomedical biomedical-engineer biotech bioengineering

Biraj’s Answer

Think about Bio-engineering as Wet lab-based/ related to cells, microscopy, developing medicine, vaccines, etc.
Think Biomedical Engineering as like other Engineering developing and designing tools, machines, procedures that help in the healthcare industry.
I would say Bio-engineering is a subset of Biomedical Engineering directed towards biological sciences.
