Expected Salary
Work Environment

Bio-Medical engineers are the human force that drive the new advancements in the technological medicine oriented field. Professionals use logic and inspiration to apply device advancements to clinical biochemist data, in order to develop methods that ensure the well being of a patient.
Presentation By: Keshav Vedula
People working in this field have the ability to develop organs naturally without taking a donor, or using plastic materials.
In addition, Bio-medical engineers can expand the meaning living organisms by altering their genetic code to produce astounding results.
Skills Involved:
Critical Thinking;

The ability to use logical thinking to recognize aspects of a concept and to produce more efficient alternatives
Complex problem solving;

The ability to distinguish complex problems and review related data in order to develop possible solutions

Active listening;

Paying full attention to your workmates ideas and actively think of questions and concepts that will add to the conversation
Deductive Reasoning;

The ability to implement overall restrictions to specified problems to produce reasonable answers
Perceptual Speed:

The ability to promptly and accurately compare similarities and differences among sets of data, numbers, objects, ideas, or problems.

Work with other engineers;
Solve over arching problems

As a Biomedical Engineer, may have to work in multiple working environments.
Most of these Engineers work in clean, well lighted medical, academic, industrial and government research laboratories as well as hospitals.
Lab coats and safety equipment required in the lab while testing

They may be exposed to hazards such as electrical shock, burns, radiation, noxious fumes, and communicable diseases. Their hazards are minimized by safety procedures and protective clothing.
While in the office, the engineers are typically coordinating research and development amongst a larger group, or conducting first hand research. The environment is relatively quiet and work friendly. Specific dress code isn't present, however formal attire is assumed.
People in this situation have to travel frequently to meet other workmates elsewhere.
Once a design has been tested in the lab, the bio-medical engineers send the layout to a manufacturing plant where it is assembled to be used to the real world.
The overall environment is loud and chaotic, from the use of multiple machines. A helmet is required when on the assembly plant.
Those working in testing laboratories usually work 40 hours a week, from 8 am to 5 pm. Those in hospitals may work from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, but they are frequently on call in case of emergencies. Hospital labs tend to require more clinical data.
