  1. In Science we trust says:

    While a biomedical engineering degree is probably ideal, there are several other degrees that can work well. Chemical and Mechanical engineering are good. However, since they are so general, if possible, add coursework in biomaterials, anatomy, physiology and biochemistry if possible.

    BEs generally either work for a hospital maintaining the equipment (xray 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. If you enter the field, I suggest that you consider the medical device business which is about designing, making and delivering medical device technology. It is a growth field and is one of the most recession proof areas of the economy. For example, pacemakers, catheters, stents, artificial hearts, dialysis machines, artificial joints, and vascular grafts are some of the devices that engineers help produce. BEs in the device business often conduct animal research on new materials and devices.

    You should 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:

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

    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.
