Biomedical engineers work in various settings that allow them to solve issues with medicine and biology in order to improve patient care. Areas in which biomedical engineers can be found include clinical, rehabilitation, cellular, genetic and tissue engineering.
Job opportunities for biomedical engineers also abound in systems physiology, biomechanics, medical imaging, drug design and delivery, orthopedic surgery, pharmaceuticals and bioinstrumentation. Biomedical engineers typically need at least a bachelor's degree for these fields, though many students go on to graduate school for engineering, medical school or law school.
Items that biomedical engineers help with include automated patient monitoring, artificial organs, surgical devices and medical imaging systems.
