[2015] Libby Ardrey (GTT7  Period 7): Biomedical Engineering

To be a Biological engineer, you must have (at least) a Bachelor's degree. To get a bachelor's degree, you need to go to college for at least four years.Biomedical engineers usually major in Biological Biosystems Engineering and(or) Biomedical/Medical Engineering. You don't need any on-the-job training to become competent. There are no recent apprenticeships for this career.

wages and outcomeBiomedical engineers in the lowest 10 percent make about $52,600 per year. The top 10 percent in the field make about $139,450 or higher. On average, biomedical engineeres make $51.64 an hour. The statewide average pay is$18.15 an hour. There will be a need for about 420 new Biomedical Engineers to meet market demand between 2012-2022. This includes the demand due to replacement (workers leaving the occupation or retiring) as well as growth. The job outlook will grow about 27% inbetween 2012- 2022(which is actually pretty high.)

Biomedical Engineers help thousands and thousands of people and make their lives a lot better and easier. Their job is to design and implement new medical equipment and procedures, such as computer-aided surgery and tissue engineering. They work with a wide range of medical, technical and administrative staff and patients. They are sometimes responsible for managing an organization's medical equipment, whether by administering the computer systems that process equipment data, or overseeing service contracts. Biomedical engineers are typically employed by hospitals, universities, research organizations and diagnostic/medical instrumentation manufacturers.


To be a good Biochemical engineer, you have to be able to read work-related information well. You also have to be able to use scientific rules and strategies to solve problems. You must beable to do a lot of watching and learning.You should be creative, and be good with robotics. You must have good eyesight.You have to be able to learn new things or ideas quickly, and beable to use them. You should be interested in science, investigation, and biology.

Biochemical engineers advise clients or customers (They work with a lot of different people).They sometimes also analyze engineering design problems, scientific research data, or investigative findings. They sometimes use drafting or mechanical drawing techniques.They work in hospitals, universities, and research facilities. They solve problems with health systems.
