College preparation
I chose a Biomedical engineer because
I love learning about the human body and
I also love engineering so the perfect job for that would be a Bio med engineer also it involves alot of science which is what i wanna major in.
For starters in the
United States
the beginning salary
range for bio med engineers
is about $49,804 yearly.
For an intermediate level of
bio med engineers the yearly
salary is about $57,006.
For a senior level bio med
engineer a typical yearly salary
would be around $67,419. Also
for a bio medical engineer specialist
a yearly salary is about $96,361.
Job outlook
Employment of biomedical engineers is predicted to grow about 62 percent from the year 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations but thats because its a small occupation so the fast growth will result in only about 9,700 new jobs over the 10-year period.
Top Biomedical Engineering Schools
#1 - John Hopkins University (Baltimore,MD)
#2 - Georgia Insitiute of Technology(Atlanta,GA)
#3 - Duke University (Durhan, NC)
#4 - University of California San Diego (LaJolla, CA)
#5 - Massachusetss Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA)
To become a biomedical engineer, in high
school you would just take your typical science classes like Biology, Chemistry, Physics. Also taking engineering classes would be a big help (if the high school offers) like at Ritenour high they offer beginning engineering classes like IED and POE more advance classes like Biotechnical engineering would be a great class to take into cosideration if wanting to major in Biomed engineering in college.
High school
To become a biomedical engineering you need to have at least your accosiates degree. But over all you need about 6 years of college so you need to get your masters degree.
involves the use of engineering principles and methods.
For example computers, in developing devices for
diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The making of prosthetic
organs such as artificial hearts, kidneys,
and joints are examples of devices developed by biomechanical engineers.
Involves development of natural living tissue
like skin and artificial materials for use in the human body.
Field studies how systems within living organisms function, from pharmaceutical drug response and disease response, to voluntary limb movements to skin healing and auditory physiology. Involves modeling using mathematical formulas.
Analysis and understanding of physical phenomena
to identify health problems such as tumors. Magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound and other
techniques are used in this field.
Pretty much is sorting of computer databases,
inventorying medical equipment and
instruments also the purchase of medical
equipment used in hospitals.
This specialty is mostly physical
therapy and may involve development of customized solutions to certain highly specific needs of individuals.
On a daily basis Biomedical engineers work in mostly hospitals or labs depending on the specialty. Also depending on the specialty it determines how long you work and what you do.
Biomedical engineering pretty much covers the four basic fields of science.
-Like knowing biology and the way living things work.
-Chemistry because you have to work with alot of medicines.
-Physics to help you with the functioning of machines for example a mechanical prosthetic leg you would need to know how fast or slow to adjust it and what not.
-Also anatomy you would need to know how the human body works and what medicines to use for certain diseases.

Indirect science
Biomedical engineering has alot of science
but obviously is in the the engineering field as well. So basically it covers both engineering and science the same and all of it is put together to make this field.
