Biomedical Engineer Jobs
Biomedical Engineer Job Overview
Biomedical engineers use concepts from a variety of professions including engineering, biology, and physics to design, develop and evaluate biological and health systems and products. They may play a role in the production of artificial organs, prostheses, medical instrumentation, pharmaceuticals and computerized medical information systems. They may also work on information technology related to heath management and care delivery systems. Biomedical engineers should have strong skills and experience in the biological and physical sciences, mathematics, engineering, information technology and the English language. Some biomedical engineers work solely in an office while others may spend some time in a clinical setting working with patients. Most biomedical engineers are a part of a team that may include other professionals such as physicians, physical therapists, clinical research coordinators, engineers and biologists.
Biomedical Engineer Education Requirements
Generally, a bachelor's degree is the minimal educational requirement for an entry position as a biomedical engineer. Those who prefer to design and conduct their own research will need to progress to a master's degree or doctorate in the field or a related area of study.
Biomedical Engineer Job Market
According to statistics, the job outlook for biomedical engineers is expected to grow by 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, which is much faster than the national average for all occupations. However, because this is a small field of occupation, this fast growth rate will only amount to around 2,700 jobs. The fast pace of growth in this industry is expected due to the aging of the baby boomer generation and their need for medical devices and increased healthcare services.
Biomedical Engineer Salary
According to national numbers, the median pay for biomedical engineers was $86,960 in May 2012. Those employed in scientific research and development earned the most while those working in colleges and universities earned the lowest annual salaries.
