Bi medical Engineer
Biomedical engineers get to experiment and play with new materials every day to create moving prosthetic limbs, artificial organs, and so much more cool technology!
An engineering career
Biomedical engineers tend to work in all sorts of places like universities, research facilities, and hospitals.
Biomedical engineer careers are projected to grow 7% by 2026 because they can now help solve so many more problems such as assisting with organ transplants, and create complex prosthetic limbs to help paraplegics.
Most Biomedical engineers need a bachelor's degree in bioengineering, and some positions may require a graduate degree.
Facts about bioengineering:
- Most biomedical engineers make about $86,000 each year.
- Biomedical engineers have created dozens of artificial kidneys, skin, etc.
- Penn State University has an active artificial heart research program.
I would love to be a bioengineer when I grow up because I would work with new materials every day and get to design and create technology that can help people live longer healthier lives.
