Bhavin’s Answer

Pickup a top university of your choice and use the curriculum and pre-requirements for various courses there as a guide to help you prepare for your future.
Example: https://bioeng.berkeley.edu/undergrad/program lists various requirements for undergrad.

Then checkout various zoom events that you can attend or watch their recordings:
https://events.berkeley.edu/index.php?event_ID=148963&date=2022-12-14&tab=all_events
Example: Getting Started in Undergraduate Research and Finding a Mentor Workshop
Workshop | December 14 | 5-6 p.m. | Remote via Zoom: tinyurl.com/UgradResearch12-14-22

Follow students and researchers and professors at these universities on LinkedIn and check out their profiles on what they have done and are doing.

These paths should provide you good new paths to explore.

Enjoy exploring -- Best wishes!

Mack’s Answer

Hello Erick.

Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering would be good choices for a growing career field. Aside from strong math and science (biology, of course, and chemistry) courses in high school, a Bachelor of Science four year degree would be required. Here is a link that gives a bit more detail:
https://engineeringonline.ucr.edu/blog/whats-the-difference-between-bioengineering-vs-biomedical-engineering/

No doubt several local colleges offer degrees that would fit that need -- Clemson University, NC State University (my alma mater where Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is offered), and Georgia Tech would be good choices.

A Bioengineering degree could prepare you for the pharmaceutical, environmental, and chemical industries in South Carolina, especially at manufacturing sites where process design, process control, quality control, and problem solving are important.

If you are more interested in some of the basic research and development in similar industries, you may need a master's degree or even a doctorate to gain entry.

Good luck!
