are engineering jobs scarce?
Hello! I keep hearing that careers in academia are really hard to find, but is engineering an exception (particularity biomedical engineering)? Thanks!

    Dear Mikeala,  

    Thank you for your question.  It is true that finding an academic job can be hard but it is easier to find one in a new field.  Departments are building around the country so there is more opportunity.  So you should think about the question - what will be the next new field!  Biomedical Engineering is definitely on the newer side but is there something else coming along?
