  1. In Science we trust says:

    “Easy” is probably not the best term but ME is a very good degree to work with. There are several types of Biomedical Engineers. Most either work for a hospital maintaining the equipment (x-ray equipment, diagnostics,etc.), work in industry, typically for a medical device or equipment manufacturer or they work in academia doing research on materials and/or devices. The medical device business is about designing, making and delivering medical device technology so that health care providers (e.g. doctors) have the tools to treat people. For example, pacemakers, catheters, imaging systems, diagnostic equipment, stents, artificial hearts, dialysis machines, artificial joints, and vascular grafts are some of the devices that biomedical engineers help produce.

    For a research BE job, you’ll generally need an advanced degree. Hospital BE jobs are in every city but they do not pay as well compared to other engineering jobs. Those in the medical device business make the most. Starting salaries can range from $ 70K to nearly $ 90K per year.

    You can improve your chances of getting a medical device job by going to where they are. The industry is highly concentrated geographically with a relatively small number of high density areas that are the best places to find a job. The major areas with a large number of companies are:

    S.F. Bay area (specifically Silicon Valley)
    Orange County, CA
    Minneapolis/St. Paul
    Boston
    San Diego

    There are other areas that have an emerging biomedical company presence (e.g. Seattle & Salt Lake City) but they pale in comparison to the big ones above.
