No Experience Necessary
Question by bravedonxiote: What is the best place to get a job if I want to make over 0K a year in biomedical engineering?
Answer by In Science we trust
To make top pay in BE, I suggest that you go into the higher end of business which is about designing, making and delivering medical device technology. For example, pacemakers, catheters, stents, artificial hearts, dialysis machines, artificial joints, and vascular grafts are some of the devices that biomedical engineers help produce. You should also know that the device business 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
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. As for pay, Silicon Valley is probably the highest with the other areas of CA next. Of course, the cost of living in CA is higher than other areas like MN and UT.
