The demand for technological solutions in healthcare is growing, meaning more and more engineers will be needed to devise these solutions. Your ideas and insights can make all the difference.
Some of Biomedical Engineering graduates opt for a career in research, for example by securing a PhD position at a university or research institute. Other join research & development departments at large companies or go to work as a system engineer, product specialist or project manager in business and industry, where they develop new products and services for the healthcare market. There are also graduates that specialize further (with further education) as clinical physicists and take positions in a hospital where they are involved in the use, maintenance and safety aspects of medical devices. The rest of Biomedical Engineering graduates work as consultants, forging a link between research and the market, and advising healthcare providers on a range of issues.
