    Hi, I have a degree and masters in Chemical Engineering. I graduated 2 years ago and I have been working in an Accenture, a Technology Consulting firm. However, I want to get back into engineering- is it too late? I also want to go into Bio medical Engineering with prosthetic limbs and artificial organs etc, but this is not chemical engineering. How would I go about this and where do I apply etc? Thanks, Ceire

    Hi. I am a girl student in biomedical engineering. I have consulted some experts in this job. One asked me about my future since I have chosen this field saying, "only one girl candidate is selected out of 100 in interviews (in this field alone)." I asked him why and said to him that women are working in all areas today. His answer was a smile. Really, is there any complications to getting a job in the biomedical field for a woman? If yes, please explain to me about it so that I can ...

    Hi! I am about to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Bioengineering and I was wondering how important it is in today's job world to have a Master's in order to get a job. I know that a Master's is always useful in getting a raise, etc. However, is it truly close to impossible to find a job in the Bioengineering field with just a Bachelor's degree? Thanks for your help! (:

    An undergraduate degree is a good step to find work in this field. However, a Master's certainly provides an advantage, not so much in terms of salary (although it should add to that too), but in terms of finding a more interesting job. A Master's degree ...

    I have decided to go to a community college and transfer to a school to earn my Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering. I then want to go to medical school, but I am unsure whether I should take the Pre-Med Engineering route or just do the basic Engineering route. I want to eventually become a Pediatric Radiologist. What would be the best route to take? I am still unsure of how to go about this path.

    To decide on the best course to take, it would be important to check with the medical school you wish to apply to for their entrance requirements. If these are quite flexible and a regular engineering degree would be admissible (provided some courses are ...

    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 ...

I love medicine so I could be an engineer that does stuff with that. I wanted to know if you needed REALLY good math and science skills. I have them but I don't know if I want to think about that all day. Anyways, I wanted to know if 1. You needed really good math and science skills, or can you just have regular math and science skills? 2. Is it a fun job? ...
