Biomedical Engineer Job Description/Duties and Personal Characteristics http://library.thinkquest.org/15569/car1bre1.html
http://www.bls.gov/ooh/architecture-and-engineering/biomedical-engineers.htm Sources Education Needed Computer programming, engineering, drafting or mechanical drawing courses are encouraged if your high school includes these in its curriculum. Gain experience in the medical or engineering fields. Reading about biomedical engineering either through internet searches or your local library would be a great way to expand your knowledge. Educational requirements in college are either a bachelor's degree in engineering with a major in biomedical engineering or a bachelor's degree in chemical, electrical, or mechanical engineering with a specialty in biomedical engineering. A working understanding of life sciences and medical terminology is required. Some good colleges are Johns Hopkins, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Duke Work Setting and Wages and Benefits A basic work week as a biomedical engineer is about 40 hours. Some biomedical engineers work in hospitals where therapy occurs and others work in laboratories doing research. Still others work in manufacturing settings where they design biomedical engineering products. Additionally, these engineers also work in commercial offices where they make or support business decisions. Some biomedical engineers have to travel, but not all of them. According to money.cnn.com biomedical engineering is one of the least stressful existing jobs. I would like not traveling but i wouldn't want to work indoors all of the time. A new biomedical engineer could earn around 50,000 to 60,000 dollars annually. The pay range for this job is $51,380 and $108,540. Biomedical engineers do receive insurance, sick leave, and paid vacation. I believe that I could make a living off of this job. Employment Outlook and Personal Assessment Biomedical engineering is a very demanding job with a job growth rate of about 62% while the national average is 14%. I think that their are many reasons why biomedical engineering is the job for me. One is that it requires a good understanding in math and science and I excel in both of those subjects. Another is that one thing that biomedical engineering entails is creation of medical instruments and devices and I am a creative person that enjoy making things. It is also a job that pays fairly well so I could make a good living off of it. It fits my educational plans because as mentioned before, I excel in math and engineering requires lots of math. Overall, biomedical engineering suits me very well. Some things that you may be doing while working as a biomedical engineer are use engineering principles to solve health/medical problems, research things related to life, and you would design certain medical devices. I personally, would like all of this because I like problem solving, am interested by life, and love creating things. Biomedical engineers need the following characteristics:
a strong interest in engineering and medicine, the ability to think analytically and solve problems, an aptitude for science and mathematics, the ability to visualize complex processes and equipment, good oral and written communication skills, creativity and persistence, a willingness to improve their knowledge and skills on an ongoing basis, and the ability to work effectively with people from various disciplines and educational backgrounds. This job fits me because you need creativity, which I have a lot of and you need to be intelligent in mathematics, which I am. An important value that this job would offer to me is having fun creating and using math.
