Hello! I am a sophomore in high school currently gathering information on a biomedical engineer. Is anyone willing to let me interview them??

These are the questions needed to be responded to: Interviewee’s specific degree: Interviewee’s place of employment: Please describe your engineering field. What is your current job title? Please describe your particular job and duties. What is your average work schedule? Starting with high school, describe your educational background chronologically. If you had it to do over, related to your career or education, would you do anything differently? What advice would you give to me as someone interested in pursuing a career path similar to yours?

What are the best ways to find someone to interview?

Hello! I’m a high school junior looking for someone to interview for my engineering class. The only requirements are that they are from an engineering or tech heavy background although personally i’m very interested in science or programming related fields so that would be preferable. I would also prefer that they live in/are from/went to School in my state-north carolina, but that’s not a requirement. I tried linked in and googling to find professionals near me but the majority of what came up was add listings. Does anyone have advice on how I can find someone in that field who would be interested in an interview?

How medical does a biomedical-engineer get?

So I’ve always been interested in the medical field, the brain function to be specific. But I also find it interesting to create new things. I’m still confused on what job I might be going for but I want it to mostly relate to the brain. As in mental characteristics that pass through genetics or the reading the reaction people have when someone says something that disturbers or excites them. I would also prefer if there was a four year max in schooling.

How social can you be in a biomedical engineering field?

This doesn't need to be specifically biomedical engineering, but it can include any type of engineering. I am a very social person and I fear that there isn't much social interaction occurring within the field.

What is the biomedical engineering field like? Does it stand out from other fields in engineering? What types of engineering are used in this field? Who would you suggest pursue this field?

I know the medical industry has a good pay in comparison to other occupations of interest, so that is one reason why I’m asking about this. I don’t know much about the field, and I’m curious to know more.

What classes t take or neuroscience / biomedical enginnering major ?

I am 16, currently in 10th grade. I have selected AP Micro, AP Stats, and AP Seminar for my 11th-grade year, and I have chosen Environmental Science as a science class. I had planned to take a business major but I am also conflicted as I want to take a neuroscience or biomedical engineering major as well. I have only previously taken biology and physics for my science classes and I am afraid I won't be qualified for these majors since I haven't taken enough science classes yet (such as Chemistry) and I'm already in my third year of highschool. Even so, I wouldn't be able to take AP Chem or AP Bio since I don't have chemistry as a prerequisite. Should I keep my 11th-grade classes the same or should I switch some/all of them out? What should I take in 12th grade? I also want to have AP Micro as an option in case of a back-up plan if I need to resort back to taking a Business major.

How do scientific researchers come up with their ideas?

I'm an 11th grader in some biotechnology classes, and it's got me very interested in pursuing a career in medical research. However, I don't really understand how researchers come up with their ideas. Is there a list out there to choose from, or do people come up with them themselves? Because I've been trying and never came up with anything.
