I'm assuming this is a continuation of your question: "Biomedical Engineering vs Chemical Engineering with Bio specialization?"
https://www.careervillage.org/questions/53798/biomedical-engineering-vs-chemical-engineering-with-bio-specialization


These two disciplines are very different in their traditional interpretations, so the basic answer to your question is "yes". The more detailed answer, assuming you want to compare these disciplines within the context of the medical device industry, is that both of these disciplines will do similar functions if they are working on designing the products. If you look at the manufacturing side, you could see a slight preference for chemical engineers because the types of problems encountered would be more readily understood by a chemical engineer. However, the design side would have a preference for biomedical engineers (straight out of school with no experience) because the basics you learn in a biomed. undergrad degree will be more applicable.


Thank you very much! The information you provided was a huge help for me! Gillian C.

I've been answering students' career questions as a volunteer on CareerVillage.org, helping them get the information, insights, and guidance they need to build a better future for themselves. Today I found a question that I can't answer, but which I think you can!

Hoping to see you on CareerVillage.org soon!

Yours truly,
