    Hi, I am currently a student in Grade 12 and I have always dreamed of working in a hospital environment. Due to a few reasons, I was only looking for a program (medical related) which would take a maximum of 3 years to complete. I applied to 2 programs which I was most interested in which is 1) BioMedical Engineering and 2) Health Informatics.

  • Shirlene, Colombo Sri Lanka asked Shruti Pai, Center of Excellence for Limb Loss Prevention and Prosthetic Engineering

    Hi I'm a civil engineering graduate who is working at a construction project in my country. I studied civil engineering since I wanted to structural design engineer. But since I am not a civil engineering graduate of a local university of Sri Lanka , the companies don't give me a chance. They only offer site jobs which is very hard to do. And when I'm in the site they always complain saying they don like to take girls for work. Now I'm feeling depressed and want to change my field. Is there ...

    Hi Shruti, I am really interested in biomedical engineering because I am passionate about biology and math and the idea of improving people's lives through technology is very interesting and captivating. However, I am aware that biomedical engineering is a fairly new field, so I am afraid that there are fewer jobs available for people that have a bachelors in biomedical engineering. I had people suggest to me to major in mechanical or electrical and then do masters in biomedical engineering. ...

    The allure of engineering is the fact that I may be able to improve the lives of many people with one single development. I am concerned, however, that I will not be able to have a direct and personal level of interaction with those I help,which is why I am torn between going to medical school or graduate school for engineering. Maybe this is a belief I hold due to my ignorance about the day-to-day life in the engineering occupation, but I hope that someone may help me understand more about ...

    This is a great question that I know many people within the field have faced, including myself. As an engineer, you are very likely to work with people in the medical field including doctors but you are less likely to work with patients directly unless ...
