What engineering degree would be best

by Samantha

I am very interested in bioengineering, but everything I have read suggests picking a more traditional engineering degree. I have always been very interested in medical research can I still do this with a mechanical or electrical engineering degree? ...

Medicine is always being transformed by technology: scanning devices, artificial joints, prosthetic limbs, electronic implants, designer drugs, computerized health records. And many of the medical advances that you hear about are, in fact, engineering achievements.

While a doctor can treat a few thousand people in a life’s time, the engineer who develops a better medical technology can improve the lives of millions.

In additional to working in traditional medical areas, engineers can also have a positive impact on people’s health by helping design new methods of processing food to make it easier to eat healthy; or designing parks and transportation systems to make it easier for incorporate exercise into our daily routines.

Engineering changes lives by making the things that keep us safe, make us healthy, and help us overcome illness or physical challenges.
