    I am a junior in the biomedical engineering program at an average engineering school, trying to decide what to do after graduation. I have very good grades and am currently doing research with two professors. I could work toward my Masters at this school but it would be in electrical engineering (which could be could to show other skills) but I would be able to do research with a biomedical professor. Staying at this school will also save me money. Or I could apply to other biomedical ...

    Hi, Emma,

    This is a great question, thank you for asking it!  Graduate degrees are a little different from undergraduate degrees – for graduate school, the ranking of the school becomes less important to the value of your degree.  Your ...

    Hello, I have just been accepted in Rutgers university. I am interested in Biomedical Engineering. Lately, I have read about people who regret taking the biomedical engineering major. They mentioned that the companies tend to choose mechanical engineers rather than biomedical engineers because M.E have better technical skills. I wanted to know to what extent this is correct.

    Hi, Eman,
     
    Sometimes people who don’t get a job that they wanted will blame something external – say, their major – instead of taking a hard look at their resume and interview skills.  And sometimes people who don’t ...

Over the course of my high school career I became very ill with a cardiac condition...My grades suffered in that I received some B's on my transcript. (Mostly in classes taken at the local community college). I am looking at engineering schools right now and most of them look for 4.0 GPAs...I live in Northern California and need to stay somewhat close to home because of my condition...Is ...

    Hi, Leila,
    First of all, please know that although the grades on your transcript are important, they are not the only things that college admissions offices look at. Your activities, interests, hobbies, and life experiences are all also important.  So I ...

    Hello! I will be a sophomore this coming school year, and have already thought a lot about college and future career paths. I originally thought about doing something with sports medicine, and when researching the different career opportunities within sports medicine, when I found biomedical engineering. I love the idea of combining the two pathways, but am not sure either how to do it, or if it is even a smart idea career-wise in the first place. I would want to develop and design different ...

    Hello, I'm considering bioengineering and am concerned about my university's bioengineering program since it is not ABET accredited (although the other engineering disciplines are ABET accredited). How important is it to find an ABET accredited program for bioengineering/biomedical engineering? Also, is it almost better to study as an engineer in a more traditional category of engineering and then take some biology classes instead of doing a bioengineering major? Thanks so much!

    What other careers/ job opportunities can engineering degrees provide (other than a specific engineering career)? For example, if i got a degree in biomedical engineering what careers or opportunities would i be qualified for other than being a biomedical engineer? How versatile are engineering degrees?
