MS in Biomedical Engineering with background in Biotechnology

Hi there! I am considering a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering and my undergrad degree was in Biotechnology. Though biology and biochemistry are my strong points, I have not had any exposure to electrical or mechanical engineering concepts in college. However the idea of working in the medical field and working for the welfare of people excites me but will the courses in Biomed engineering be too overwhelming for me? Can you also tell me - are biomed engineering jobs in demand these days?
