Biomedical Engineering

By Peterson's Staff updated on Thursday, November 14, 2013

The future is bright for students who have an interest in engineering and medicine. Companies have and will continue to invest substantial funds into biomedical research. As a result, biomedical engineering jobs are expected to continue to grow in number, and students who have been in biomedical engineering programs will have more and better opportunities in the marketplace.

Biomedical engineers develop their knowledge of biology, engineering, and medicine while in school, and they use that knowledge to create or critique health-related products. Biomedical engineers design and test life-saving devices like pacemakers, prostheses, and medical imaging equipment. Programs often include biomedical internships and research.
