WHERE DO BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERS WORK?
Bachelor's of Science (BS) in Biomedical Engineering
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
American Medical Systems
St. Jude Medical, Inc
Tucker Davis Technologies
Engineers concentrating on research
Graduate degree is usually recommended
Master's Degree (MS) in Biomedical Engineering
Master's degree in business
Doctoral Degree (PhD) in Biomedical Engineering
Entry-level in the private sector $45,000-$70,000 a year
After 5 years, $60,000-$85,000
Senior engineer: $85,000-$140,000
Employment for bimedical engineers is expected to grow 72% from 2008-2018
PROS AND CONS
Significant impact on patient care
Work with cutting-edge technology
Variety and challenge everyday
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
artificial organs and other devices
biomedical equipment to determine whether it is safe
biomedical equipment and then adjusting, maintaining or repairing it
with others in the medical field: medical scientists, chemists and doctors
What are Employers Looking For?
Problem Solving Skills
What do Biomedical Engineers design?
Computer systems to monitor patients during surgery
Medical Imaging Systems
New Surgical Procedures
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
- Doctor, Nurse or Physician Assistant
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
and minor in
Microsystems & Nanotechnoly
Then I plan to go to UW Madison to get my master's degree in
After college I want to get a job working for
World Leader in Medical Device Technology
I want to engineer
