BIOLOGY
,
CHEMISTRY

and
TECHNOLOGY
to advance healthcare treatment.

Biomaterial Reseachers
Bioinstrumentation Engineers
EDUCATION PATH
High School Preperation
Math, Science, English and Speech Courses
Computer Programing, and Engineering Drawing Classes
Job Shadowing or Summer Engineering Camp
Research Biomedical Engineering
WHERE DO BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERS WORK?
Hospitals
Universities
Laboratories

Industry
Governement Agencies

SPECIALIZATION
Clinical Engineers
Undergraduate Degree
Graduate Degree
Bachelor's of Science (BS) in Biomedical Engineering
OR
Bachelor's of Science (BS) in a related engineering field (chemical, electrical, industrial, mechanical)
Required for entry-level engineering positions
Encouraged to participate in co-ops and internships
Prepared for medical school
Employment After College

CAREER OUTLOOK
Employment for bimedical engineers is expected to grow 72% from 2008-2018
PROS AND CONS
Pros:
Significant impact on patient care
Work with cutting-edge technology
Variety and challenge everyday
Cons:
Stressful working conditions
Most challenging engineering major
Most empolyers look for biomedical engineers with a graduate degree
Potential hazardous exposure to fumes, diseases and radiation
HOURS AND WORKING CONDITIONS
Work in modern, well-equipped hospitals, research centers, and manufacturing plants
Engineers working for hospitals, clinics, and universities work
40 hours a week

Those working for medical supply companies travel frequently and work longer hours
DAY IN THE LIFE OF A BIOMEDICAL ENGINEER

INNOVATION IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING TODAY
Due to recent advancements, prostheses are coming closer and closer to perfectly replicating natural body parts
South African Sprinter, Oscar Pistorius was temporarily disqulified from the Olympics...
...because his ankles and feet did not tire like most people's did.
Hailey is a 20 year old university student, she is part of a clinical trial for a new type of prosthetic leg - one that reads the brain's electrical signals rather than muscle movements
Through research and innovation, biomedical engineers were able to create an artificial heart that is compeletly self contained in the body without tubes or lines running through the skin.
My Future as a Biomedical Engineer
I have always wanted to go into the
medical field
- Doctor, Nurse or Physician Assistant
I love
science
and
technology
, and
math
is my favorite subject
I am taking POE right now and I love the
challenge, invention and problem solving skills
that are needed
Attending UW Platteville next year, major in
Mechanical Engineering
and minor in
Microsystems & Nanotechnoly
Then I plan to go to UW Madison to get my master's degree in
Biomedical Engineering
After college I want to get a job working for
Medtronic, Inc
World Leader in Medical Device Technology
I want to engineer
medical devices
