Would a degree in biomedical engineering help me if I want to go into genetics?

I know biomedical engineering has more to do with stem cell research, but initially the two seem to have a lot in common via working with substances of people rather than the person themselves. #engineering #biomedical-engineering #genetics

Luis "Lou"’s Answer

Biomedical engineering has to do with a lot more than just stem cell research. It is a very broad field with many different areas that one can focus on. Stem cell research has more to do with Genetics than biomedical engineering.
If you are interested in Genetics, a degree in Microbiology, Chemistry or Medicine would probably be more appropriate than Biomed. You can then focus in Genetics, Genetic engineering or Genetic medicine.
