With my degree in biomedical engineering, I went onto an entry-level project development engineering role in medical devices as my first job. Although my degree prepared me well for understanding the anatomy of the body in relationship to the devices I would be designing, I felt I had to learn many of the crucial mechanics and materials based topics as I went along. Therefore, I'd recommend taking as many mechanical and materials engineering electives as you can to enhance your degree and make you a more well-rounded engineer when you graduate.

Keep in mind that the human body is just another machine, and as such, biomedical engineering is still engineering. Biology and chemistry enter more strongly than some other engineering disciplines, sure. One of my stock replies is to take computer classes, as much as you can. Those will always come in handy in just about any profession. Given the trends in biomedical E, many devices you'll be exposed to are essentially computers anyway. The various systems in the human body are easier to understand the more other branches of engineering you get familiar with. In my exposures to Biomed, it always helped understand the concepts when comparing the mechanism to other machines.

Julia,

Depending on what you are interested in: if you like the BIOMEDICAL part, then biology, chemistry, materials, and neuroscience are good. Additionally, research is more important.

If you like the ENGINEERING part, then physics, math, comp sci (although I would not recommend a dual degree, minor at best because comp sci tends to have a lot of homework), and even management are good. Management is useful if you want to go into project engineering. In this case, internships are more important.

Good luck.

Hello Julia, I would recommend you look at taking a foreign language, also mathematics. I minored in math and it has helped me in problem solving.
