    To get into a good BME program you will need to have good SAT scores and strong high school academic credentials, particularly in your math, science (biology and chemistry) and physics courses. Programs often look at other factors such as any ...

    Hi there, I'm a new student enrolled to begin a Bioengineering program at my local university. I'm into getting a minor, but it's currently a toss up between Business and French. I've been told that I'm not too far off credit-wise for a Business minor, but am not sure what benefits having a major in bioengineering and minor in business would do for me. Same goes for French. I've already taken 5 years of French, and would love to continue my studies in French. I'm also looking at options of ...

    Hi Stacy. My feeling is that extra education and degrees (or minors) never hurt and you never know where those skills will benefit you later in life. If you have the financial stability and flexibility to seek an additional degree or a minor in another ...

    Hi everyone! My question is the following, I am a junior/sophmore working on my bioengineering undergrad BS. I thought that by studying this I would be able to have various job opportunities, but I have read alot of negative opinions towards bioengineering due to the lack of "jobs" for it. I know I am studying in an accredited college, but I am scared that I have chosen the wrong career...I have to look after my family. And the only way I can do that is by knowing there is a chance out there ...

    Dear Daisy,

    These are certainly valid concerns that you raise. Nationally and also here at UT Austin we find that 1/3 of BS Biomedical Engineering graduates go on to graduate school or law school, 1/3 enter medical school, and 1/3 get jobs in ...

    I am currently taking courses at a junior college, but I am looking to transfer either in the fall or spring. I have been accepted to Smith College and I have heard it is a really good school, but I'm not sure it is the best for engineering. They don't have specific disciplines to major in. I would like to major in biomedical, nuclear, or a combination of both. Would it be better to go to Smith and get a general degree, or would it be better to go to a school like U of I or Purdue? What ...

    Not sure if I am the best person to answer this, but here are my thoughts… Most of my experience has been with students who have a more specialized degree from a larger university. I have had one graduate student in the past who came from a smaller ...

    Hi, I received my bachelors' degree in history and French two years ago. But after working as a project coordinator in an engineering company, I would also like to pursue a degree in engineering. After doing a bit of research, it is kind of discouraging to read about a lot of the engineering jobs are being offshored to other countries like China and India, but I think a future in biomedical engineering and environmental engineering still look bright comparing to computer engineering. So ...

    ENGINEERING - MECHANICAL: BS ENGINEERING - ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC: BS Mechanical Engineering is probably a better match if you are interested in Biomedical Engineering. Many ME programs have courses in biomechanics. In addition, if you choose to go ...
