44 thoughts on “Biomedical Engineer a good major?

  1. I'm an MPC student, where I study Maths, Physics, Chemistry in my intermediate. With interest, In my Engineering I wanted to take Bio-Medical . Will it be possible to clear its entrance exam and pursue my study as BME?

  2. From what I've heard a bachelor's degree is required for a job…but as in any engineering discipline a master's or doctorate can get you into the higher level specialized jobs such as r&d positions. Is this true? I've also heard that biomedical, electrical, and mechanical overlap with career positions. For example, a mechanical engineer could be working in a biomedical company and vice versa. Is this true?

  3. From what I have studied and heard about its recommended to have a BA in a more common form of engineering (chemical, mechanical, or electrical.) and to have a MS in BME that way you can kind of choose which direction you want to go with your degree.

  4. Hi
    Im a senior in high school and I rlly like bio and science. The problem is that Im not sure I want to go to med school and shit. I rlly thought biomedical engineering would be looking good, but ive only got mixed opinions. im so confused now.
    also would it help if i got an mba after bme.


  5. Thank you for this video! You clarified me a lot of things and questions that were stuck in my mind! Your channel it's great, I found there a lot of accurate info

  6. from what I read, about 1/3 of biomedical engineering graduates got directly into the workforce, 1/3 go into medical school or further education, and 1/3 go into entrepreneurship. so it could be a versatile major but maybe not as versatile as other engineering majors when it comes to the engineering sectors. but then again not all bioengineering degrees are the same. biomedical engineering can range from stem cell engineering, to medical imaging, prosthetics, etc. like at my school (George Mason university) bioengineering is the closest major to EE and the bioengineering department focuses more on medical imaging, neural engineering, and prosthetics. this makes the bioengineering graduates from my school very appealing to employers but for jobs in software development and whatnot. so yeah I'd say do extensive research into your school's bme department.

  7. I'm really into Human biology & I like doing math, but I don't wanna become a doctor, I just can't imagine myself there.
    I like doing things more handy, coming up with new ideas , solving problems are my favorite kinda things to do. So , when I first came across the term " Biomedical Engineering " I just felt like THIS IS IT !!
    I'm about to apply for UNDERGRADUATE . Now I can not decide should I go for Mechanical engineering or Biomedical Engineering ( for Bachelor ) ??
    cause tbh I'm kinda afraid with the career paths 🙁

  8. if you get a mechanical engineering degree with a graduate concentration in biomedical or biology, you can be more likely to get a jobs in things like prosthetics ( the main niche for biomedical). So it' hard to say.

  9. Hey Matt thank you for the useful information. I am a recent biomedical engineering graduate from Canada and was wondering if you knew any information on how to get internships and jobs in the USA. Any tips or advise would be super helpful! Thank you!

  10. Hey! I'm very interested in biomedical engineering but I would like to take it as a masters degree so what career would you recommend me between mechatronics, mechanical or mechanic electrician?

  11. Hi there.
    I am not sure if this is accurate or not, but it seems to me that you are using the wrong term for this field of science. The Bio-Engineering field deals with the systems you are talking about, where Biomedical Engineering is the folks who repair and maintain medical equipment. The later requiring about a high school diploma and possibly a BMET certification instead of higher education. This kind if Biomed is also labeled as a Clinical Engineer: This field is more related to the maintenance department in a hospital or any organization except it deals only in medical equipment instead of toilets and windows, etc.
    There is a lot of confusion in referring to these two disciplines because the names are so similar and sometimes are interchanged accidentally for that reason.

  12. If you are talking about a Biomedical Engineering Technology degree, you don't need a Master's in order to get into the field. An Associate's degree will get you through the door and is enough to do anything in the field provided you have a good school. I have never used my Calc class and only a little bit of chemistry (AC/DC is very important and Physics). Specializations include Laboratory, Imaging modality (which pays the most), Healthcare IT biomed (Highly recommend a major in networking.), and General biomed (this is usually starting technicians). General starting salary in Michigan is $25.00- specialization such as imaging start at about $82k a year with 5 years experience you are looking at $120,000 a year.
    I know this because I am a Biomedical Engineer working in Michigan, currently.

  13. Thanks for the video Matt, been following your video series for a while now, you have some great tips and advice..

    I'm starting my BME BS program this fall. In my opinion the BME field, although not in its first steps, it's progressively growing into becoming what is already established for other branches of Eng. such as Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, etc.. And although the job outlook may not look as ample compared to other areas of Eng., I think it's still very promising considering the coming future of computers, robotics and the expanding field of nano-technology, which I think is where medicine is headed.

    We'll see how it goes. Thanks and keep up the great work!

  14. thank you buddy for all your research and share it with us.. do you know the stadistics in mechatronis engineer (electro/mechanical) or robotics design or something like that? It think it would be the future career but i cant find work information about it

  15. I don't really think you know what you're talking about. When it comes to the school there are classes that have bio and chem mixed. Your logic is also wrong when it comes to the jobs. Just because there aren't lots of postings on one website doesn't mean there are no jobs there

  16. Is it worth getting a Master of Engineering ( M. Eng) in Biomedical eng or a Master of Science ( MS) degree ? I am not planning to do my PhD  after my Masters or anytime in the future.Can anyone answer this.
    One more question- Can you get the same jobs as you would with a M. Eng degree if you were to get a MS degree ?
    Also can @ Engineered Truth make a video on the difference between the two. Would be very helpful as I have to make a decision about this as soon as possible. Thanks

  17. Thanks for showing the curriculum at UCLA. Honestly, it looks like crap. I'm with Georgia Tech and their curriculum is definitely much better geared to the application in its field compared to the curriculum at UCLA. If you have the time, please take a look at it and if anyone is interested in looking into this field I would stay away from UCLA just based on their academic curriculum.
